New weekly zoom story time and sing-a-long sessions launched for visually-impaired pre-school children

Families with visually-impaired pre-school age children are being invited to take part in a weekly Zoom-based story time and sing-a-long session run by Norfolk sight loss charity.

Vision Norfolk is putting on the virtual events every Tuesday morning to provide some respite for hard-pressed mums and dads who may currently be having to home-school older siblings as well as look after their visually-impaired children.

The free 45 minute sessions will provide stories and musical entertainment for babies and pre-schoolers, and are open to all visually-impaired pre-school children and their siblings.

“All parents are under pressure at the moment, but for parents with visually-impaired children, there is an extra dimension,” said Barbara Dunn, young people and families activities co-ordinator at Vision Norfolk.

“These new sessions are designed to entertain very young visually-impaired children, and bring them and their families together in an online community. We’re aiming to make them a lot of fun, as well as providing support to mums and dads at this difficult time.”

The Children’s Story Time and Sing-a-long session take place on Zoom every Tuesday morning at 11am. Attendance is free for visually-impaired pre-school children and their siblings. For more details, email [email protected].
