Specific individual needs of each child in the group will be identified through key working and observations. Any special educational needs which may be identified by staff will be discussed in a sensitive manner with parents/carers. With their approval and consent the child may then be referred to appropriate professionals in order to meet their individual needs. On-going consultation and support from parents/carers is considered an essential part of our ways of working.
Children already identified as having special needs may be admitted to Pre-school after consultation with parents/carers and relevant professionals. Such a partnership allows us to meet their specific needs. If one-to-one support is required Pre-school is committed to seeking funding to employ a suitable person.
