What Does a Day Nursery Offer my Child?

Provides a safe environment for your child to “Listen, Talk, Play & Share” whilst achieving learning and development milestones, essential within the pre-school years (as outlined in the parents guide to Early Years Foundation Stage).   They also offer continuity of care until your child starts school and beyond if they are working with other types of childcare providers such as After School Clubs.

Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Childcare settings offer inclusive provision. Settings should provide details of the support they provide for children with SEND. This can be found under the indivdiual providers service record in the `SEND Local Offer' tab.
