Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Shining stars Day Nursery offers access to all. We have regard to the SEND Code of Practice and Equality act 2010 to support children with special educational needs. This may be through communication and interaction, cognition and learning, social, emotional and mental health or sensory and/or physical needs. The nursery is on one level which is easily accessible from the road. There is disabled parking available and ramps to access the building. We have disabled toilets and wide doors for wheelchair access. We encourage parents and children to visit and view the nursery and offer home visits. We gather information to meet your child's needs by completing "All about me" and registration forms. We value the views of parent/ carers and promote strong parent partnership. The nursery has low level furniture and equipment and we cater for children's individual needs. Access to the garden is available to all, with a large open space. We liaise with other professionals in supporting children with special educational needs. The setting has a named SENCO and a deputy Senco. 

The Manager has experience in supporting children with Autism, behavioural issues, speech and language, supporting children with medical conditions such as Asthma and Epilepsy. Makaton has been completed by some staff at the setting. Children are supported on transition to and from the Nursery with visits.  We are able to support families with DLA claims and completing relevant paperwork. 

Children from age 2 will have a two year review completed by their key person which is shared with parent/ carer at a meeting. This helps to identify that good progress is being made, or whether some additional support may be needed or if a developmental delay has been identified which could indicate SEN or disability.

As a setting we make observations on children and record these using Tapestry.
