The John McNeill Opportunity Centre is the District Specialist Centre for South Wiltshire. We welcome children with additional needs and help to support their parents/carers. We are south Wiltshire’s only specialist nursery for children with difficulties and disabilities.
The children have a range of difficulties associated with autistic spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, communication difficulties, genetic disorders and sensory impairments.
Our team of experienced and dedicated staff provide a special environment that makes each child feel safe, secure and understood – where they settle happily and begin to build confidence. We know that communication is so important and the children need to be encouraged and given opportunities to develop a means to communicate.
The children are at the centre of all we do and we ensure that the time they spend with us is quality time. We build on their strengths to help them with their difficulties. The support we give a child during their first few years forms the basis for their future and brings parents together forever.
