Treetops
Treetops is a short break centre in Dartford. It is where children and young people aged 4-19 with disabilities, can go for a little break, still go to school, make friends and have fun. It is run by Kent County Council and the NHS. The purpose of a short break is to provide children who have learning disabilities and young disabled people with time away from their parents/carers and allow them access to a range of social and recreational opportunities and experience's. The unit has been built to emulate a 'home environment'. The central area of the building incorporates a pod, lounge and medical room. Through the doors facing to the back of the building is the activity room, computer room, sensory room and soft play area. There is also a storage room. The activity room adjoins the dining room and kitchen. There are 6 bedrooms, two with sinks four have ceiling track hoists and 5 have adjustable beds. Each wing includes bathroom/wet room fitted with ceiling hoists. There is a 1 acre garden with a large paved area a log walk, large climbing frame, go kart track and the corridor has been designed and decorated in a jungle theme. There are raised beds for growing vegetables, a shaded area and a securely fenced soft floored area for swings and slide.
