What you need to bring:

  • Prescribed medication in its container(s).
  • Toothbrushes, toothpaste, flannels, personal toiletries
  • Clothes and nappies.
  • If you have special dietary requirements, please bring the necessary items.
  • Books, work or activities to occupy yourself  for the times when children are on the day programme.

What NOT to bring:

  • Valuables or large amounts of money
  • Alcohol or drugs
  • Electronic toys such as Playstations
  • Bedding of any kind (pillows, quilts, special blankets or covers)


  • To avoid accidents please give the nurses any prescribed medicines from your GP and they will store them in a safe place.
  • We provide towels and bedding and you will be expected to make your own beds and change the sheets every week.
  • We have a fully equipped kitchen which will be available to prepare your family’s meals. There is also a locked cupboard  in the kitchen for parents’ use.
  • Mobile phones are allowed but please be considerate with their use.
