What Does a Pre-school 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 can also offer continuity of care until your child starts school and beyond if they are working with other types of childcare providers such as Childminders.

Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Childcare settings offer inclusive early years provision and each have individual SEND Local Offer reports, attached to their record, detailing the support they provide for SEND. If your child has SEND you may find more specific information within the Local Offer pages.  If you do not find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to the Family Information Service in Poole or the Children's Information Service in Bournemouth.
