1. How does the Bright Kiddies Pre-School know if children need extra help and what should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs or disabilities?
At Bright Kiddies Pre-School we treat every child as an individual. Your child will be allocated a key person who will be responsible for your child’s development.

Through the use of observations, assessments and planning for their next steps we are able to identify any concerns which we will share with you, and with consent we will contact other professionals if required.

If you have any concerns about your child you should speak with your child’s key person who will be able to advise you further.

2. How will Early Year’s staff support my child?
Your child’s key person will work with both you and your child. This relationship will ensure that we share knowledge concerning your child and their development.

This knowledge begins with the ‘All about Me’ section from the online learning Journals and continues with regular meetings relating to their next steps. Through continual observations we can plan for your child including assessing additional support from other professionals as appropriate.

With your permission, we will contact the Early Help team if required either for advice or to make a referral with any concerns. We will implement strategies and advice offered as appropriate.

3. How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs?
Every child is viewed as ‘unique’ therefore we plan for your child’s development based on observations of your child and evidence gained for their Learning Journal.

The environment your child plays in, will be appropriate for their needs and additional support or resources will be supplied as appropriate.

4. How will both you and I know how my child is doing and how will you help me to support my child’s learning?
A strong relationship between the setting and Parents is important to the Pre-School. You have access to view your child’s online Learning Journal and your child’s key person will meet with you regularly to discuss your child’s development and next steps.

We are always available to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child’s learning.

5. What support will there be for my child’s overall well being?
We work in partnership with you and offer ‘settling in’ sessions to help familiarise your child with the Pre-School. This will also enable us to discuss any concerns before they commence at Pre-School. Care routines will be discussed prior to starting at the Pre-School, including nappy changing. We are able to administer prescribed medicines once the appropriate forms have been completed. If additional training is required to administer medicine we will undertake this as necessary.

Promoting positive behaviour is important to the setting we utilise a range of techniques to ensure this is met. We will always discuss any behavioural concerns with you in order to maintain a consistent approach between home and the setting.

The safety of your child is paramount. We have procedures in place to support each child’s safety while in the setting. We will not allow any child off the premises if the person collecting them is not known to the setting. We regularly undertake and review risk assessments on our equipment from both a 2 year olds and 3 year old perspective. Risk assessments are completed before any trip including a short walk around the local community.

6. What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by Bright Kiddies Pre-School?
We work with all professionals as required for each child and always encourage these persons to come and visit the relevant child in the Setting.

If required we will contact and work with the Early Help Team. We will obtain parental consent before we make contact and we will include parents in all decisions made and meetings held.

If Speech and Language concerns are identified by the setting, we will discuss concerns with the parents and refer to Speech and Language with parental consent. We can work with Speech and Language therapists and the reports they provide to support the children in their language development.

If we have any safeguarding concerns regarding any child it is our reasonability as a childcare professional to report these to the local child services. However we will always discuss our concerns with the parents before making any such report, unless we feel by doing this will put the child at risk.

7. What training are the staff supporting children with SEND, had or having?
The staff continually receive and refresh their training. All staff are qualified within Early Years or are currently studying for qualifications.

Bright Kiddies staff have attended the following training: Promoting positive behaviour, working with two year olds, Math in early years, Every Child a Talker and Senco network meetings.

We continually reflect upon our practice and will attend training when a particular need is identified.
