Moving Up Sections

When your child reaches the age to move up to the next section, they will go through a moving up process.

Each section does the moving up ceremony slightly differently, which is the beauty of it as it creates a unique experience for section!

Taster sessions

When your child is ready to move up, the leaders from the current section will be in touch via email to advise you of the last session before moving to the new section.

The leaders from the next section will also be in touch to arrange for a taster session so that your child can experience what the new section will be like as well as meet the leaders there.
