Special Needs Support

At Tiny Tigers Pre-School we treat every child as an individual. Your child will be allocated a key person who will be responsible for your child's development. Through the use of observations and planning for their next steps we are able to identify any concerns which we will share with you, and with consent we will contact other professionals if required.  Should you have any concerns about your child you should speak with your child's key person who will be able to advise you further.

Your child's key person will work with both you and your child. This relationship will ensure that we share knowledge concerning your child and their development. This knowledge begins with the 'Welcome Pack' and the all about me section in Tapestry (online learning journal) and continues with regular meetings relating to their next steps. Through continual observations we can plan for your child including assessing additional support from other professionals as appropriate.
With your permission, we will contact outside agencies if required either for advice or to make a referral with any concerns and we will implement strategies.

 Every child is viewed as unique, therefore we plan for your child's development based on observations of your child and evidence gained for their Learning Journal within Tapestry. The environment your child plays in will be appropriate for their needs and additional support or resources will be supplied as appropriate.

At Tiny Tigers we have a SENDCO (special education needs co-ordinator) that has been trained through KCC to support the key person and families to ensure that the child's individual needs are met.

We have robust policies and procedures in place which are reviewed regularly ensuring that our resources and environments are suitable and accessible for all.

The nursery SENDCO will work with the key person to provide personal plans for each individual child based around their abilities and interests.

The SENDCO will liaise with other professionals (with the parent’s consent) such as Early Years Inclusion Officers, Speech and Language Therapists and Health Visitors to gain further advise in supporting each individual child.  The SENDCO and the key person will work collaboratively to ensure that these targets and strategies are implemented.

The plans and activities will be reviewed by the key person, SENDCO and the parents regularly to update plans and provide support for all children.

Parents communication is valued and the key person will work together with the parents to ensure that every child's learning is supported.

At the initial settling in sessions the parent/carers will work with the key person to settle the child into the nursery. Throughout this time the key person will complete the information sheet to understand the child's individual routines, needs, interests and abilities.

The parents are encouraged to work together with the key person completing observations and activities for home to keep them informed of new interests so that this can be incorporated in the activities that are planned for that child.

The parents will be invited to attend regular meetings to review the child's progress.

We offer settling in sessions which will familiarise your child with the Pre-School and also enable support for your child to be discussed before they commence at Pre-School. Care routines will be discussed prior to starting at the Tiny Tigers, including nappy changing. We are able to administer prescribed medicines once the appropriate form has been completed.  If additional training is required to administer medicine we will undertake this as necessary but on this occasion your child will not be able to start preschool until this training has been completed.
Promoting positive behaviour is important to the setting.  Our belief is Caring and Sharing and we utilise a range of techniques to ensure this is met.  We will always discuss any behaviour concerns with you in order to maintain a consistent approach between home and the setting. 
The safety of your child is paramount.  Children are signed in and out with details of who is due to collect them each session. We will not allow any children off the premises if the person collecting them is not known to the setting or does not give the correct password. We regularly undertake and review risk assessments on our equipment and environment from both a 2 year olds and 3 year old perspective. Risk assessments are completed before every session and before any trip including short walks around the local community.

A strong relationship between the setting and Parents is important to the Pre-School. You have access to view your online child's online Learning Journal and your child's key person will meet with you regularly to discuss your child's development and next steps.  We are always available to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child's learning and development.

All children are welcome to attend trips.  Parents are notified before trips in order to identify any particular needs. Risk assessments are completed and volunteers are asked to assist on the trip from the children's families if required On any trips all children wear high visibility Jackets, mobile phone, first aid kit and a child's individual medicine or medical equipment, as required, is always taken.

We will work closely with all parents to access any specialist equipment that may be required.
Visual timetables/makaton are used to assist children with the daily routine and Language books are shared with setting and families of children with English as Additional Language to aide communication.

Before your child joins the Pre-School we encourage you to visit the setting several times so that you can both become acquainted with the Environment and staff. We have a Settling session before your child is due to start pre school. We work closely with each family to develop a settling routine to match your child's needs.
If a child attends more than another setting or is moving to a different setting we share the child's next steps with that setting.
We liaise with locOutside agencies will support with transition to school for any child they have been involved with at the Pre-School.al schools to arrange visits of both the children to the schools and the Teachers to visit the children at the Pre-School to aid the transition to new Schools

The staff continually receive and refresh their training. All staff are qualified within Early Years or are currently studying for qualifications. Staff have attended; promoting positive behaviour, English as additional language; senco forums and lift meetings.We continually reflect upon our practice and will attend training when a particular need is identified. Every year we provide parents with an annual questionnaire, thereby giving parents an opportunity to make comments/recommendations or ideas that we may implement.
