Description

Children can attend the Early Suport Nursery from the term after their 3rd birthday, inline with universal funding for 3 and 4 year olds. Children are required to have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or be in the process of an EHCP assessment, naming the nursery or specialist provision, in order to attend the nursery.

The Early Support Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, suitably differentiated and adapted to meet the individual needs of each child. The nursery values partnership with parents and other professionals, such as the Portage Team, Speech and Language Therapy, Paediatric Physiotherapy and the Visually and Hearing Impaired Service.
