All staff are dedicated to promoting a warm welcoming environment for all our families with or without SEND and share positive attitudes towards inclusion. We work closely with the families and outside agencies to provide the best outcome for the child and family.
Mildmay Nursery is a small and welcoming nursery with a maximum of 15 children per session. The nursery is housed in a Adult Learning Centre in its own purpose built nursery unit. We have a secure outside garden and engage in free flow play.
- Identifying children's needs
Each child is assigned a Keyperson. The keyperson’s role is to support the child and family during their time at nursery. Before enrolment we meet with parents to talk about their child and any needs or concerns the family might have. All staff are responsible to carry out observations on all children at all sessions which is fed back to the keypersons at the end of session.

Feedback is also given to parent/carers on a day to day basis. All keypersons will complete a progress report termly for their children. These are shared and discussed with the family at parent/carer evenings and the childs next steps are agreed with the family to meet the individual child’s needs. Parent/carers can arrange to have a private meeting with their keyperson at any time.

Activities are adapted to meet the individual child’s needs by observations, staff meetings and a dedicated budget to SEND.
