Special Educational Needs
We are fully committed to the inclusion of all children and believe that this is beneficial to both the mainstream children and those with special needs that they play and learn together. We have long experience and expertise in working with children with varying special needs, and involve the parents, who know their child best, in every aspect of the child’s learning at nursery.
We have two Surrey County Council funded types of provision for children with special needs and we have a different admissions procedures to the 3-5s nursery for these. The staff in both groups work very closely together to plan the children’s learning and are overseen by the special needs coordinator (SENCO).
We work closely with organisations such as Family Voice Surrey and Contact-a-Family. If you are a parent of a child with additional needs, please visit these two websites for more information by clicking on the links.
As a parent with an autistic child I was very nervous sending him to nursery, but DNS made me feel welcome and comforted that my boy would be happy and develop into the best boy ever. He has made so much progress we are overwhelmed with the support and love he has been given. He has had the best first year with so much appreciation to the team to help my boy flourish and blossom into who he really is. Thank you so very much!”
