Description

We are an inclusive setting that offers childcare places for children from 2-4 years of age. 

Special Needs Support

From the start of your child's journey with us we build a bond from an initial home visit. We truly value every parents input and knowledge of your child.

We use online learning journey to enable parents to freely access their child's developmental progression.

Our broad curriculum covers the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and incorporates the characteristics of effective learning.

Staff take a graduated approach to enable knowledge of each child and their individual needs. This is done through regular observations to determine progress and  identify specific needs starting with a Two Year Check and progress reviews at the end of each full term.

 

Parents are reguarly kept up to date via their child's individual online journal. Your child's Key Person is your first point of call, however all staff are avaliable to support all children needs and in addtion an expereienced SENCO.

We use best practice guidance that adopts a universal appraoch of strategies for your child. Should your child need more specific interventions we will work with you to set targets and personalised plans and determine other outside agencies involvement.

 

We provide an enriched environment to enable holistic learning through the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation stage. 

Practitioners will plan individually for each childs needs using Universal, targetted or individualised interventions. 

We have access to the Equality and Inclusion team support and Specialist Teachers should the need arise. 

Staff have gained a wealth of knowlegde and strategies that can be used with a variety of children with SEN and addtional needs. Having worked with children with autism, visually impaired, speech delay, global delay, behavioural difficulties, mic-key button feeding. 

Staff have gained further knowledge through courses such as, Autism Champions, Specialist Health training and Communcation.

We can gain support of outside agencies through the Local Inclusion Forum Team for consistent care in meeting your childs individual needs.

Parents can monitor their child's through their individual learning journeys via photos and videos. Parents can upload any information they wish to share with staff

We ensure that all children are included in activities through risk asessments and adapting the actvity to meet all individual needs.

Our provision is on one lower level to enable access for wheelchair users and those with mobility problems.

To enable good transitions we undertake home visits to build a relationship with you and your child.

Your child will be invited to settling sessions to assist transitions before commencing sessions.

We arrange visits to our local Primary School and have reading sessions with them to help your child to feel confident about School life and the environment. We hold PE sessions and children can have their dinners in the School Hall to experinece change and the environment.
