Our nurturing, homely and child friendly home, has been developed with input from the Children who live in it, and for some who call it “home”.
Strong routines and clearly structured days create and provide a safe, stimulating environment, that also allows us to explore and have fun, whilst supporting and promoting opportunity and development of social, emotional and life/independent skills.
We keep busy and active doing many activities, including sensory activities, learning how to play, learning and building coping mechanisms to help with co-regulation and self-regulation, as well as creating healthy, happy lifestyles, shared experiences and promoting socialisation options.
Children are listened to, encouraged to grow, learn new skills, build self-esteem/ confidence and know they are important and that their input is essential in ensuring their time with us is tailored to their specific needs.
A strong, consistent staff team create and provide a safe environment.
We help create learning opportunities in line with personal development that prepares a young person for their future in conjunction with the important people in their life.
