Special Educational Needs


Enhanced Activity Centres

Innovative Special Educational Needs provision for young people in St Helens. Our Centres provide day care, holiday and out of hours provision that enhances the lives of those with more specific needs.

Our Enhanced Activity Centres are located alongside our Thatto Heath and Peasley Cross nurseries in St Helens. They support children and young people aged 8 to 18 who have special educational needs. Younger children who would benefit from the centre’s resources are welcome to use them alongside Small Wonders staff. 

Our highly qualified team works closely with parents to understand and care for children’s individual needs, ensuring that the environment meets children’s social, moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development.

An enhanced experience

Professional support is available for families and their children, and practitioners with specific experience can assist in helping children and young people to overcome barriers and face difficulty head on. The needs of all are treated with utmost sensitivity and we prepare children and young people for the experiences they may face in adult life. The centres truly are a place for children and young people to feel safe and secure and the environments are spacious, organised and well resourced.

Based over three rooms with a connecting kitchen the centres have a multi-sensory suite, exploratory area and leisure space, arts and crafts corner, games station, and more to help children and young people build their confidence. They also benefit from a large outdoor garden with allotment and development areas for physical challenge and enjoyment. Both centres have a Breakfast Club, Afterschool Club, Weekend Club, Youth Club and a Holiday Club out of school term time. We also offer facilities for training and workshops. We also have disabled toilets and separate changing facilities.
