'by the Learning Rooms'

Four Seasons centre and all of it's services are run by clients of the Learning Rooms, with the support of our fully qualified and experienced staff. We encourage them to run it as their own business to help develop their personal confidence and professional skills.


From their first day at Four Seasons we encourage everyone to try their hand at the areas they are interested in. We love seeing our clients grow and develop, both personally and professionally. We have helped some to take workplace positions in voluntary or paid employment.

We see Four Seasons as much more than just a garden centre & cafe, it is a fabulously unique place run by fabulously unique people.
