To provide a safe haven day care centre for Special needs kids to learn and play with all the support that they need during school breaks.

by The Mummy in Wigan, England, United Kingdom

I would like to provide a day care centre for special needs children.  Many of these children have complex needs and require one to one support with anything from personal hygiene to just getting around, others may have behavioural issues and others have medical issues.  Due to the needs of these children many parents are unable to go to work as they are unable to leave their children with a relative or a "regular" childminder when school is on break due to the child's needs.  This facility would provide children with a safe place to come where their needs will be met and they will be safe.  If a child needs 1 : 1 support we will provide this and if they need medical assistance we will have an on site nurse.  Parents can then go to work, make friends or just get back to their "normal" knowing tat their child is safe, well looked after and will have fun and be cared fo.  I see a big space with soft play equipment suitable for children of all needs that adults can go in to help children around, ball pools,  trampolines with hoists so wheel chair bound kids can feel what its like to bounce.  Playground equipment, for all ages and abilities with wheel chair access,  children's exercise equipment to help those with low muscle tone and control issues.  Sand pits, messy play.  Dark rooms light rooms quiet rooms, music rooms.  I want these children to be able to experience everything that in day today life they can not experience because of their needs.  There will also be a fully functional changing facility with changing beds and hoists.  It will be a haven for kids and parents allowing both to lead a full life.
