Staff-Child Relationship


We are a small friendly day nursery catering for 39 children per day, this itself enables the setting to be very homelike which enables children to feel settled very quickly, because of this every child knows every staff member which makes transition from one room to another that much easier. We have relatively small classes which enables our staff to develop further bonds with the children and give quality care and assess the needs of all individual children.

 

Staff Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Training


We are a fully inclusive setting with experience in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, we have 3 trained and experienced SEND Co-odinators who have worked with children with many different types of SEND. We also have staff who support children with additional needs within their own family, and understand the fears and support some parents may need. We work closely with parents and carers and value their input and support. Parents and specialist teachers, or medical professionals are invited into the setting to work alongside the SEND co-ordinators to write their child’s one page document, and the graduated response approach and care-plan if required.
