Description

Activities provided by West Reading Children’s Centres are inclusive; we aim to cater for all children (including those with SEN) by working with parents and carers to understand how we can support individual needs of the families attending. Our practice recognises the principals of the Early Years Foundation Stage that all children are unique and they that they develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, The planning for these activities is supported by a qualified teacher and is informed by the areas of learning & development and the early learning goals of the EYFS.

 

The centres have access to support from the Speech & Language Therapy. They, along with the Education Psychology service, provide training and support to our staff and those who work in our neighbouring childcare settings, to enable us to respond to the needs of all children. Training on recognising and adopting strategies to deal with specific needs and behaviours such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder is also provided to enhance the service that families receive from the children’s centre.

 

We also support early years settings to refer to the early intervention panel where individual needs are assessed for one to one support funding, education psychology or the portage service.
