Special Need

Children with additional needs will have their needs met through the creation of an inclusive environment.

A child with special needs will be included in everyday routines, appropriate to their individual ability. I will provide relevant activities that promote their welfare and development. I would seek information and share knowledge with parents regarding their child’s individual needs. Activities will be adapted to ensure your child has every opportunity to take part. If necessary, specialist equipment will be accessed and I would seek advice from other professionals and organisations.

My admission policy states: I am happy to take on children with special needs providing I feel I can provide them with the care they need. (For example I will not be able to provide one to one care as I have the other children or look after a child in a wheelchair, as my home is not suitable) If your child has additional needs please discuss them with me first as I would not want to raise your expectations.
