Little Saints Community Pre-school give the opportunity on enrolment for parents/carers to voice any concerns they may have regarding their child attending our setting. We pride ourselves in reassuring parents that we will access and make available any additional support or equipment necessary, which will allow their child to be safe, well cared for and feel a valued member of our group.

SENCo

Every child's needs and/or requirements for extra support will become evident during, regular observations, termly assessments, including the 2 year assessment carried out by your child's key person. The key person will work closely with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) and yourselves within our setting to ascertain the best way forward for your child's needs.  We would encourage you to speak with your child’s Key person, the SENCo or the Senior practitioner if you have any concerns regarding your childs developement, and we as a team will fully support your family, to give your child the best opportunity and start within early years education.

 

We are very lucky to have Mrs Mack as our SENCo and Mrs Lulu as SENCo Support, who work together along with key persons & parents in supporting every individual child with additional developmental needs.  We offer speech and language support including, the ICAN 'Early Talk Boost' designed to narrow the gap between 3-4yr olds with language delay.  Through sessions with 'Tizzy The Tiger', children have noticeably improved their attention and listening skills.  They are able to learn and use new words and build sentences.  We also work closely with outside agencies making referrals and inviting professionals in to advise us on the best strategies and ways forward to best support parents and children who may require additional help.
