Greenfields House

For boys and girls aged 5-13

Greenfields House is a residential therapeutic community with a special school, providing therapeutic care, education and treatment for up to 10 children aged 5-13.  The home occupies a large detached Edwardian house with an extensive garden situated in a beautiful rural location in Kent.

We specialize in the treatment of children who present with severe emotional, psychological and behavioural problems including sexualized and other disturbing behaviours as a result of attachment difficulties rooted in early life trauma and abuse.

Through the use of Childhood First’s unique and effective Integrated Systemic Therapy, which focuses on healing trauma and enabling healthy attachments and relationships, children achieve exceptional outcomes in every aspect of their lives.   

Our care and education staff are all therapeutically trained to enable children to work through their experiences of past trauma in a safe and comfortable environment designed for group living and learning. We combine individual therapy with a strong group-based culture which helps children engage with their difficulties, and support one another in recovering and achieving their potential.
