Description

Flower Pots Day Nursery believe that all children are individuals, they have an equal right to be valued and listened to, and are entitled to access all the nursery facilities.Flower Pots is committed to providing an inclusive environment and ensure that all children have the opportunities to reach their full potential where every child is able to access nursery care and education that stretches their learning and development. Children and their families are treated fairly regardless of race, sex, disability, age, religion or sexual orientation.

We have high aspirations for all children and aim to work together with parents to support each child to develop and learn in their own way and at their own pace.

We aim to build positive relationships with all children and their families, we want parents to be involved as much as they can within the nursery and to share the children's successes, achievements and hopes for the future.

2. How are parents involved at the setting and how can I be involved?

We welcome the parents into the nursery on a regular basis to come in and see nursery life and meet the other parents. For example we do Christmas Stay and Play sessions and parent network meetings. 

Parents have access to our online learning journal which we encourage parents to add their own "observations" and home life to the journals so we can access it at nursery and the children can view this with their peers. 

Parents understand that they can ask to have a catch up with their child's key worker, this can be arranged to meet the parents working life and other family commitments.

3. How will practitioners work with me to share information about my child's progress? What is additional for children with SEND?

The above opportunities are available for all parents/carers but in addition to this we welcome more frequent opportunities to meet with parents of children with SEND. This can be on a daily basis if required. We do offer other forms of communication if required which includes phone conversations and emails.

If other professionals are involved, we welcome them into the setting and will inform the parents so they can make arrangements to attend if they feel necessary. 

4. What specialist services and expertise are available at, or accessed by the setting?

Our SENCO Charlotte Hatt attends the termly Local Authority SENCO Liaison Groups. We can contact the The Early Years SEND, Access and Inclusion Team when required through telephone consultations with the parental agreement or child specific advice from an Early Years SEND Advisor. 

We are happy for professionals involved with the child to visit and welcome this opportunity to develop our knowledge.

5. How accessible is the setting's environment (indoors and outdoors)?

Our ground floor is easily accessible, all entrances are wide single doors however the door to the garden is a double door which opens out flat onto the grass. 

We do have a disabled toilet located on the lower ground. All rooms have the detachable gates which can allow a wheelchair through. All our sinks are low level which the children can access themselves along with hand dryers promoting the child's independence. 

We are happy to make reasonable adjustments to our environment and discuss a child's individual needs with their family ensuring every child's day nursery is a positive and meaningful experience which encourages their learning and development.

7. What future plans does your setting have for developing its SEND?

We are wanting to send another practitioner on the Nominated New and Aspiring SENCo's this is so we have 2 within our setting. Also we would like to send more of our practitioners on further Autism training. 

We are expanding our SEN resources to help the children have special time with an adult or within a small group of children. This includes turn taking and ready, steady go games.
