The environment in Rosebrook Developmental Centre is ideal for children to learn and thrive. The use of the Heartworks in Motion© approach helps children develop holistically, allowing for opportunities to develop through creative, sensorial and experiential learning. The centre includes children with special needs with typical developing children and there are multiple advantages in this approach. This allows for children with special needs to have positive role models in different aspects, and typically developing children get to embrace differences and develop empathy from a young age. Having horses in the premises provides opportunities for children to care for the animals.
