We at Scribbles believe every child is entitled to equal opportunities and support to further their development and to combat developmental delays with early intervention. Throughout our settings we are committed to closing the developmental gap and have put in place intervention schemes for those who need it - including the use of sensory rooms in each setting, having an on-site SENCO and the opening of 'The Burrow' our early years intervention specialist room based at The Nurture Cove at Beacon Park.
Our Sensory Rooms
Our sensory rooms are an environment that has been created for the purpose of providing our children a place where their senses can be stimulated or provide a place for them to relax and have therapeutic activities to enhance their development. We use this space to create interventions on individual child's development and use this as a quiet space for children to calm and learn to regulate emotions thoroughly with adult support.
We have a dedicated SENCO across all nurseries is the role is to implement and oversee developmental strategies in place within the setting and to monitor progress, while identifying any needs our children may have.
Our SENCO can be contacted via SEN@scribblesdaynurserygroup.com
We have regard for the Department for education (DfE) and Department of Health (DoH) Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (SEND, 2015).
We ensure our provision is inclusive to all children with special educational needs.
We support parents and children with special educational needs (SEN).
We identify the specific needs of children with special educational needs and meet those needs through a range of SEN strategies.
We work in partnership with parents and other agencies in meeting individual children’s needs.
We monitor and review our policy, practice, and provision and, if necessary, make adjustments.
We at Scribbles have recently opened 'The Burrow', an early years assessment centre for children based within the Nurture Cove, accompanied by qualified staff and practitioners.
