Cooper Trees Nursery
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
We provide opportunities for both indoor and outdoor play, allowing the children to access all areas of the EYFS. We are a small homely nursery with very experienced staff. Funding is available for 2,3 and 4 year olds. We can offer music, singing and lots of fun! Both owners/managers are Makaton trained and have a wealth of experience in dealing with children with additional needs, as well as caring for those who have English as a second language.
We have extended the outside play area into the wooded area that runs behind the garden which allows children to explore and play in a woodland space.

Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
We gather information from parents, when a child starts at the setting. On entry assessments and two year checks are made and regular observations keep track on each child's individual development.

As above as well as liaison with outside agencies and parents. We use IEP's and IBP's to help the development of individual needs.

Area Senco, educational physiologist, speech therapists and health visitors.
- How we support children transferring to school
We liaise with each school, inviting the teachers to visit the children in our setting as well as visiting individual schools. Transition books help the children become familiar with their new setting as do the school uniforms that we use for school role play towards the end of the term. A report is written detailing each child's final assessments which are shared with the parents and teachers. Every parent is given an opportunity to provide an input into the report.
