Mr and Mrs Hardy are houseparents. They live in a flat within the boarding house with their son Jack. They oversee the running of the boarding house, making sure all the boarders are looked after.
"We hope that you and your children are going to have a wonderful time here. Our philosophy in the boarding house is to create an environment where children spend time away from home feeling safe and cared for; where everyone has the opportunity to develop the crucial life skills of independence and self-reliance in addition to a true understanding of the role they play in a family community. Rest assured, we will look after your child/children, and try to make boarding a happy and valuable experience."
Our boarding house is divided into three areas: Senior Boys, Junior Boys and Girls. Each area has its own resident staff with somebody available 24 hours a day to assist the children. During the day, children have access to a full-time nurse and first aid trained staff the rest of the time. As in all families, we have systems and procedures that make living together easier.
