Contacting your child at Sheredar:

It is Sheredar’s policy that parents/ guardians do not contact their child directly during the programme. There are a number of reasons for this:
  • At Sheredar we strive to create a unique atmosphere for the child away from the usual everyday routine. During our rehabilitation programmes the kids can change their routine, forget about their illness, feel independent, and enjoy an interesting world of discoveries and new meetings. Mobile phones will always “return” the children to their usual life and will not allow them to receive the unique experience of our rehabilitation programmes.
  • At a rehabilitation programme the children are always engaged in some interesting activity: workshops, horse riding, evening meetings, etc. The use of phones limits the kids’ ability to fully engage in Sheredar life. A phone call can distract a child from some activity and even break up the whole activity.
  • Absence of mobile phones at rehabilitation programmes is a recognised international practice adopted by most of the rehabilitation centres worldwide. Terry Dignan, Sheredar Programme Director, a Leading Expert with the International SeriousFun Children’s Network, who for several years was the Director of Irish rehabilitation centre Barretstown, is a strong supporter of such practice.
  • You can contact your child! The children can speak with their parents through counsellors during their way to/from Sheredar. When children arrive to Sheredar, the parents get the telephone number of a counsellor who is in charge of their child. Besides, the parents can always contact Olga Krasheninnikova (okrasheninnikova@bkc.ru, +7 915 766 87 80), our Manager of Children Enrollment in Sheredar Rehabilitation Programmes, who is also present at the programme.
  • There is no time for boredom at Sheredar programmes, but if a child really needs to speak with her/his parents, we will immediately allow her/him to do it.
  • In the event of a concern about a child parents will be contacted immediately. Parents can speak to their child at any time if they or our staff feel it’s necessary. There are always trained counsellors working with the children at Sheredar. Besides, our doctor and psychologist can provide all necessary help and support at any moment.
Give your child the possibility to conquer her/his fears, find new friends, become independent and enjoy the full benefit of her/his time at Sheredar! We are happy to see your child at our rehabilitation programmes!
If your child cannot attend Sheredar for any reason, we would ask that you inform us immediately (see contact details below) which may allow us to offer this place to another child:
