Yeovil Opportunity Group is based at the Balidon Centre on Preston Road, Yeovil and aspires to continue to lead the way in pre-school education for children and families with additional needs after nearly 50 years; Yeovil Opportunity Group was amongst the first of its kind in the country to offer specialist support. It was founded by a paediatrician and a social worker who saw the need for therapy and learning through play and family support for children with special needs, aged 0-5 years.
