Support for people with disabilities

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We ensure that the environment has been adapted to ensure it is inclusive for all children. We ascertain each child’s individual needs and use this when we complete our planning to ensure all children can take part in all activities on offer. We employ staff who have had experience and at least one staff who has completed SENCo training.

Wonderful Nursery! Rated 5 out of 5
I would highly reccomend Buttercups to any parents wanting a loving, nurturing, high quality setting for their children to learn and thrive in.  Buttercups offer a welcoming environment where children and their families feel confident and at ease.  Staff are wonderful with the children and have a wealth of knowldege and experience together.  My eldest son started when he was 18 months old and stayed at Buttercups until he started school.  He now also attends the ClubHouse after school club too which he loves!  My youngest is 2 years old and has been at Buttercups since he was 11 months old.  He loves attending and thrives in there!
