What We Do & Why We’re Different
The Creative Days programmes at Creative Day Care Centres of Excellence apply a rich, deep and socially-inclusive set of day time experiences for adults with learning, physical and other disabilities.
We focus on activities that are beyond what a member might otherwise achieve at home or elsewhere with visual, culinary and performing arts, live music, artisanal gardening and environmental awareness, and days out that connect us with natural history.
We’re also a hub of lifelong friendships and education, providing purpose and integration within the communities to which we belong. Not providing services to a fully prescribed formula, we encourage an authentic freedom of expression to mobilise members along their path of development through all of life’s chapters, including informal learning and structured education that teaches and applies life skills through purpose and engagement.
From directors to management and programme leaders, we’re all committed to creating a feel good time during and around day time activities – the spirit of the place counts and it’s evident as members arrive; walking in as though arriving home… into a rare place of warmth and belonging…
We encourage you to explore our website for greater insight, or call us to discover more or arrange a visit.
