Afternoon/group activities

On every day except Friday you join one of The Croft groups. Here's what you do in each of them:

Art Group

Every Monday afternoon in the Art Group we make things and do some painting. Art group is good fun as you get the chance to make something nice.

Tuesday Group

In this group we talk about how to stay safe and healthy. We also do fun things like yoga, playing games, tasting different foods and doing experiments.

Wednesday Group

In this group we talk about our feelings and friendships, as well as problems like bullying, anxiety and anger, and how Croft staff can help you deal with problems such as these.

Recreation Group

Every Thursday afternoon or Friday morning we go out to have some fun. We go swimming, ten-pin bowling, flying kites in the park, visiting garden centres and an animal sanctuary, Sometimes we go to the supermarket to get some tasty ingredients to cook and then eat. Parents, carers and staff join in the fun too

From 3.30 pm onwards

At 3.30pm your spare time begins. This is when you can spend time with your family. We ask all children to make a plan for the evening - staff can help you and your family to do this in the first couple of days.

You can choose from a very wide range of activities. As well as watching TV and videos youcan play on the Nintendo Wii, listen to music, play pool, read books, do jigsaws and play all sorts of games for all ages. There’s Lego, Scalectrix, a doll’s house, dressing up clothes and much more. Activities are supervised where appropriate

Before dinner you can use the art room, soft room, music room, playroom, lounge or your own room to do activities or relax. If the weather is nice you can go outside in the playground or go for a walk with an adult. All children have to be in their bedroom by 8.30 pm and at 9pm the night nurses come on duty to look after everyone until the morning.
