Tiptree Pre-school Nursery
At Tiptree Pre-school Nursery we provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for children in our care, Monday to Friday. Our goal is to support children's desire to be lifelong learners. We are based in a ground floor community hall with wheelchair access and disabled toilets on the premises. Healthy meals and snacks are provided to children throughout the day, prepared in our 5* kitchen.
We offer a pre-school to children aged 2-5 years, with our focus on providing stimulating early care and promoting each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Furniture and equipment is laid out to incorporate all seven EYFS areas and we provide developmentally appropriate toys and activities for 2-5 year olds, arranged to accommodate all children including those with mobility difficulties. All play areas have carpets and we provide a sensory soft quiet area. We have access to 3 parks nearby and we regularly go to the library and parks.
Our breakfast, after school club and holiday club caters to children aged up to 8 years and we are inclusive to those with special educational needs.

- Measuring children's progress
Planning for SEN children is done by using an individual Outcomes Plan (IOP). This identifies agreed outcomes for individual children and has small step target. This is reviewed termly with parents and carers and outside professionals. We liaise with parents on a day to day basis and we have parents evening twice a year. We add SEN children’s next steps and activates to our daily planning. All activities are differentiated to meet children’s needs and allow full access to the EYFS. We complete a progress report at the end of each term where we liaise with parents. We complete two year old progress checks. This is focussed on the three prime areas Personal, Social and Emotional, Communication and Language and Physical Development.
- Support and training for school staff
Our setting has just recently opened in June 2016. We are booked on a lot of training for 2016 starting in September.

Risk assessment is completed daily to ensure health and safety. One to one support and a key person system is provided for those children who may require support to access learning and activities and whom need support. All activities are differentiated according to the children level of development each child has their own next step and key person do activities weekly to encourage and support the children to achieve their next steps.
