Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
When children first start with us, we observe them and complete their 2 year checks or their baseline assessments (dependant on their age). We would discuss any concerns with the child(s) parents. Some children that attend already have Early Support and/or outside professionals already involved.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
We work in partnership with the child(s) parent(s) and discuss how best to move their child on to the next developmental level, either between us or having to involve outside agencies ie speech therapist, physiotherapist etc.
- Links we have to other agencies
We have very good links with the Area SENCO, Speech and language therapist and the Early Years Autism Worker. They attend our setting (plus other professionals) as and when needed.
- How we support children transferring to school
We are now part of Pelynt Primary School and have a good transition set up in the Summer Term. We also feed into other local primary schools, which the key person for the child attending will contact the relevant primary school and will support the child in the transition.
Learning and development

The manager is NVQ4 Children's Care, Learning and Development qualified. The Deputy Manager is Level 3. W have two other qualified members of staff. The SENCO attends SENCO network meetings throughout the year to keep up-to-date with the latest changes. All staff members have undergone visual training. We have a designated behaviour person who updates their training regularly.
- Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being
We offer information to the parents and children regarding healthy eating and healthy living. We encourage health professionals (such as the dentist) to come in to speak with the children and hand out information to parents.
- Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported
We discuss with the parents on a regular basis regarding their children's learning and development within the pre-school. We have an open-door policy so parent(s) are able to come in at anytime to see their child(s) learning journey. We also offer stay and play sessions so the parent(s) can stay for a longer period of time with the child(s) key person to discuss their child(ren).
