We offer a day care service for those with a learning disability.

Our staff will work with you to create a personal plan to make sure you get all you can from your placement.

We can also offer you training in line with your daycare placement including:

  • health and safety
  • food safety in catering
  • first aid

We have a range of extra activities for you to get involved in such as fishing, cricket, team building and the Gateway Award which is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

You can also sign up for one of three specially designed accredited courses. These courses allow you to build your confidence and achievements and act as a stepping stone if you are not able to progress straight onto an NVQ.
