We provide a range of different support and interventions and follow advice from other professionals such as speech and language therapists to support your child at nursery. Please refer to the nursery 'SEND Local Offer' located in key information on the website.
Do you go for outings and walks?
The children may go on local outings or walks to support their learning and development.These are usually short walks in the immediate area such as nature walks, number walks or teaching children to keep safe when crossing the road with an adult. Permission for these local outings are asked for on the registration form when your child starts the nursery. The nursery has an annual outing for all the children at the end of each academic year. Children in the pre school groups will visit the nursery allotment, which is a short bus ride away. Other outings may be arranged to support children's learning throughout the year. Permission forms are issued for any trips further afield.
What will my child need for nursery?
A spare change of clothes (Don't forget underwear and socks). If your child wears nappies, you will need to provide nappies and wipes. We ask that the younger children bring their own water bottle to help them have access to water throughout the day.
What meals and snacks are provided?
The nursery provides a healthy snack for children to have during their morning at nursery which consists of a variety of fruits and vegetables and 1 or two other healthy options such as rice cakes, breadsticks, Weetabix, bagels etc. If your child stays for lunch you can also pay to have a healthy hot lunch to be provided for your child to eat at lunch time.
