Barney Bears nursery has a clear approach to support all children within the setting. The nursery manager has many years’ experience of working with children with additional needs at the setting.
We are a purpose built nursery with three base rooms for children aged 3 months to five years. All rooms have direct access to the garden daily. We are open from 7.30am-6.30pm and offer a range of sessions from full days to half days.
- Identifying children's needs
We follow the EYFS and regularly observe children and plan next steps to support children with their development. During assessment if we notice a child is not at their expected age and stage we will meet with the parent and discuss our options such as appropriate activities or referring the child to outside agencies.
- Dedicated contacts
The first point of contact would be the child’s key person, any concerns would then be discussed with the nursery manager and SENCO.
- Involving children and their families
- Range of support available
