Esteem Team base
Esteem Team's premises are located in Exmouth town centre. This is a fantastic space that we use every day of the week as a safe place to support the children/parents/carers that we work with. We worked very hard to make the base a fun and safe place to meet for 1:1 or our group sessions. Our base Moto is "small enough to feel safe but big enough to make a difference!"
Our base is secure and can only be accessed by a key holder (Esteem Team staff) and contains our own private bathroom and toilet.
This room is full of equipment for arts and craft, cake decorating, wood work and other fun stuff! We have a huge amount of board games which can be great for a sensory break, turn taking and boosting communication and interaction skills. This room is also painted in a special green to make a green screen wall where we can create our own short stop motion films.
This room has been installed for us to be able to carry out our cooking, baking and life skill sessions. The kitchen has everything that we need to teach life skills such as washing up, making your own lunch/drink, learning how to read and use a recipe, using a washing machine and more. This room is used regularly and generates some yummy treats.
Our 'chill room' is a comfy area to relax, play and learn. There are big beanbags, sofas, sensory toys/pillows and there is a huge amount of lego, a small pool table, table football and small world play in this room. The space and layout of this room makes a good people watching space too.
This room is also used for social group sessions that we hold throughout the year.
Our 'Yellow room' is set out as a play based primary educational room. This is our newest and most used room due to the packages we offer for KS1-2 (5-11yrs). It's a safe, fun continuous provision. There is lots of play based activities as well as role play area and incidental learning zones, messy play and snuggle corner.
Our 'sensory room' has sensory equipment to use throughout the day to allow each child/young person to have a sensory break or just to have some down time. This room can also be booked to carry out 1:1 sessions. It includes a dark den, hide away spin chair, dizzy whizzy, bubble tube, light projector, massager seat, yoga ball, peanut ball, bouncer and fidget toys!
Our 'Blue room' is another calm chill room used by our staff to allows us another additional room to do 1:1 tutoring or mentoring and a place to hold parent/carer 1:1 support and Covid-19 safe parent/carer support groups.
Our 'Red room' is small and safe room for 1:1 tutoring and mentoring. This room is quieter than some rooms to allow a different atmosphere for children who need a calmer environment. It's ideal for structured sessions rather than through play.
