Staff welcome all children with any additional needs and this is reflected in our inclusive practice. 

We have a large play area for all the children with various sensory resources including a sensory tent, dark den. It is being developed at present.    

Identifying children's needs

When a parent registers their child, we gather as much information as possible via registration forms, and conversation with parents, also observation by staff when a child visits can often indicate whether a child has any additional needs.

Staff observe children in their play, through their observations over a period of time it is apparent that a child needs support.

On a daily basis we communicate with parents. We have parent consultations termly, where all matters regarding their child are discussed with the relevant key person.
