MAIN SPACE: A SENSORY HAVEN
Our main space is a sensory haven where children and adults with learning disabilities can truly be themselves. It's a place where the pressures of the outside world fade away, allowing us to engage better with our students and help them achieve their full potential. We use this space for relaxation, as well as for arts and crafts, focusing on life skills and independence for all.
THE KITCHEN: NURTURING INDEPENDENCE
Our kitchen is not just a place to cook; it's a hub for teaching independent living skills. From making a cup of tea to preparing simple meals, we cover it all. But it's not just about cooking; we also emphasise social skills by shopping for food in the community. Cooking, dining, and cleaning up are all part of the learning process, fostering a well-rounded set of life skills.
OUTSIDE SPACE: ROOM TO GROW
We've recently expanded with 6.5 acres of beautiful outdoor space, creating walking paths and a track for a safe and relaxing outdoor experience. Exciting developments are on the horizon to further enhance this space for the benefit of our students and their families.
GARDEN: LEARNING & GROWING
Our seasonal garden provides hands-on opportunities for children and adults to learn about gardening, weeding, and caring for growing plants. They also gain insights into the world of wildlife, from bees to butterflies. Picnics outside the Shepherds hut provide a chance for relaxation and connection with nature.
SHEPHERDS HUT: A CALMING RETREAT
Our Shepherds hut offers a serene and cozy escape for individuals in need of a calm, safe space. We understand the importance of having a designated area for relaxation and time-out for those with learning difficulties.
THE MOUSE HOUSE: INDEPENDENT LEARNING
We're especially proud of 'The Mouse House,' a unique, fully functional training house designed to support adults in their journey toward independent living. From basic skills like opening the front door to more complex tasks like housework and cooking, we provide one-on-one guidance and support.
