Clover Childcare Services run three children’s homes and an independent school. Our ethos is based upon the importance of secure, safe and meaningful attachments for children and the significance of trusting relationships with adults. Our care practice is informed by the use of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), which all staff are trained in. This model applies the frameworks of attachment theory, inter-subjectivity and neurobiology.

Our homes are registered to care for children between the ages of 7-18 years, although we specialise in the care of younger children between 7-11, with the goal of enabling them to move on to a family placement as their next and last move. Our school is registered for up to 22 pupils, the vast majority of whom live or have lived in our homes, We also accept referrals for day pupils who live locally, are in the care of the local authority and have an EHCP.
