Each child is important to us as an individual human being which is why we endeavour to cater for each child and their families wishes individually. Below are just a few ideas of some of the things we can offer.
It is important that children are able to rest during a stimulating day so that they are ready to tackle any challenges and learn to their full potential. We provide a sleep tent with blankets and camp mats where a staff member will lay with the children soothing them with songs and stories until they fall asleep. Some children may prefer to be cuddled to sleep in a sling, we have had training which enables us to safely use slings with the children. They may prefer to be rocked to sleep in a buggy, we have one on site all the time but your welcome to provide your own. Children are welcome to bring comforters and soothers to aid their sleep. Staff will respond to the child's needs offering and supporting children to rest and sleep at any time through out the day.
Nappies and Toilets
Children are more than welcome to start with us at any stage of toilet training. We have facilities to change nappies which are provided. We use small camping toilets and have potties and steps available. We will support, remind and encourage children to access the toilets at regular intervals throughout the day. Ensuring any 'accidents' are changed quickly and discretely.
SEN Special Educational Needs
We welcome families and children with a range of needs. Our specially trained SENCo will work together with you and the whole family as well as other professionals/agencies to achieve the best outcome for your child as an individual. Regular meetings and support will be provided. We strive to meet the needs of all children however due to the outdoor/physical aspect to our setting there may be some children who we cannot safely accommodate please contact us to discuss individual cases.
