"Lina is so happy at White Lodge as she can get involved in everything and is never excluded"

(Mum, Heidi)

Lina is three years old and has been coming to our specialist nursery for 18 months.  She is a very much loved character and really enjoys her time at nursery. She has a wonderful personality and is always smiling, she loves to sing and take part in all the activities with all her friends. Lina is confined to a wheelchair as she has Spina Bifida and is paralysed from the waist down, but nothing stops her from getting involved in everything.  At nursery she enjoys trips out and recenty visited a forest school and spent time with the horses which she loved, and she is now busy in rehersals for our Christmas carol concert. 

"Finding White Lodge has simply changed Lina and our families lives. We were so worried about finding somewhere inclusive for Lina due to her disability, but White Lodge came to our rescue" 

(Mum, Heidi)

Nick, Linas Dad serves in the forces and is often away for long periods of time. He feels so reassured that Lina is in a place she loves and is happy. 

"While I am away it gives me so much comfort to know that Lina is receiving the very best level of care back home"

(Dad, Nick)

Lina is thriving due to the specialist support and expertise of the White Lodge nursery team and she has made so many friends. She is doing so well that she will be able to attend mainstream school next year with her sister, this is something her parents didn't think would be possible.
