We have experience with, milk, gluten and egg allergies, as well as skin problems. We offer a rolling snack during each session, encouraging children's independence throughout. We also provide regular cooking activities for the children to get hands on with making tasty nibbles.
Recent experience of supporting children with additional needs
Yes - Most staff members are trained in makaton and encourage the use of this throughout sessions, as well as PECS symbols that may be needed to help individual children's communication. All staff are trained in manual handling and first aid, with an added extra being the Clements doctors surgery so close, sharing our car park. Two staff members are trained SENCO's (special educational needs co coordinator), one with mental health awareness training and as a whole we can offer our support from a range of experiences. We are proud to offer our sensory area within one of our rooms, that provides a calming space while sparking the senses. Another bonus is our links to the children center which is based in the same building, above us.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Most staff members are trained in makaton and encourage the use of this throughout sessions, as well as PECS symbols that may be needed to help individual children's communication. All staff are trained in manual handling and first aid, with an added extra being the Clements doctors surgery so close, sharing our car park. Two staff members are trained SENCO's (special educational needs co coordinator), one with mental health awareness training and as a whole we can offer our support from a range of experiences. We are proud to offer our sensory area within one of our rooms, that provides a calming space while sparking the senses. Another bonus is our links to the children centre which is based in the same building, above us. We are continually updating our qualifications and training to maintain the ability to adapt when needed.
