Special Education Needs

Holly Room is a room that supports children with mild and complex special needs and disabilities. The session times are 9.30-2.30pm . Your child will have a key person , a member of staff that will be with your child every day they attend our Nursery and you will be able to talk to your child’s key person on a daily basis. Staff are welcoming and very experienced and have relevant training to support your child to learn, enjoy and achieve. Children are taught from the very beginning about boundaries and expectations of behaviour. This is supported through the use of language, gesture, Makaton, picture resources, objects of reference, Picture Exchange Communication (PECS), visual timetables and repetition, structure of routines and special activities such as ‘Bucket Group’, which supports the development of attention and listening and tracking and focusing skills. Holly Room work very closely with outside professionals who come on site such as the Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapists and the Educational Psychologist. They work 1:1 with your child and provide therapy programmes to follow for your child’s key- person as well as parents and carers. Once your child has started and settled in nursery, a meeting will be arranged so that all professionals involved as well as parents can meet and share information. Specialist equipment that your child may need will be ordered once your child has started and been seen by the specialist professional. This can take time but we are still able to cater or your child’s needs while their individual pieces are on order.
