Alternative Provision

Every child "fits in" at the Hugi Hub and Den

Hugi Hub is our new indoor nurture centre, Hugi Den is the outside space. We have relocated from Frecheville to more suitable premises that offer provision in both indoor and outdoor learning environments.


We specialise in children with Social. Emotional, Mental Health Needs, Autism, Speech, Language and Communication Needs, SEND. 


The Hugi Hub team will support children and their families, in partnership with others to ‘curiously' explore with ‘wonder’ to realise their full potential, particularly children who require that little bit more support, are finding school challenging, need specialist support or who may be at risk of exclusion. Somewhere they can truly be themselves through expression, mindfulness, with mental health and wellbeing at the heart. All based on the 'Hygge'  Philosophy and Pedagogy.

Time to Shine


‘Time to Shine’ Sessions for children who have additional, specific or complex needs, or you have concerns as a parent or practitioner.   

Family sessions for children who have additional, specific or complex needs, or you need support. Nurseries and schools welcome too. 

A place where children and adults can enjoy special moments together, Hugi Den, James Walton Court, Halfway, Sheffield.

Autplay Therapy


AutPlay Therapy is a behavioural play-based treatment approach to working with children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. This innovative new model contains a parent-training component (where the therapist trains parents to do directive play therapy interventions in the home) and can be utilised in any setting where children with an autism disorder, ADHD, dysregulation issues, attachement disorder, or other neurodevelopmental disorders are treated. Sessions can be booked by nurseries, schools, parents and other agencies

Therapeutic Play

Social, Emotional, Mental Health 

Therapeutic Play is an activity based intervention with the main objective of improving the emotional well-being of the child.  This is accomplished through the use of play and therapeutic arts, using directive and non directive techniques. Sessions can be booked by nurseries, schools, parents and other agencies. 

Flagship Accreditation

 Tiny Hands Big Futures Hygge Accreditation 

Your early years setting or school will complete an audit to demonstrate that you provide opportunities for children that meet the Tiny Hands Big Futures Pedagogy and Principles. 

All in an environment that is calm, natural, nurturing, and supports attachment, communication and thoughts and feelings. An environment where children can truly be themselves through expression and mindfulness, promoting healthy mental health and wellbeing. On successful assessment you will be awarded the accreditation status and become a flagship setting or school.
