Encouraging Growth And Development
Our approach is holistic, allowing the children to develop self-awareness, confidence, and self-esteem alongside a sense of belief in their own abilities. We encourage the children to explore, make choices and decisions which in turn develop their ability to problem – solve.
Unique And Professional Service
The service we offer is special and unique, understanding the nature of the challenges and the specific way of helping children. We cater for each individual child, providing appropriate individual programmes, which are devised in collaboration with the child’s parents, referral agent (who could be speech therapists, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists) and pre-school team.
These programmes are implemented daily, in a routine and structured environment, being constantly monitored and updated as the needs of the child change and develop. Our Childcare Manager is Elaine Murphy. She is assisted by qualified staff members.
