We provide care for children aged from 2 to 4 years.
We aim to ensure that each child is in a safe and stimulating environment. We have a high ratio of qualified staff to children enabling us to provide generous care and attention for each child.
All our staff hold level 2 or 3 qualifications and are trained in Paediatric First Aid.
The provision for children's development and learning is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our provision reflects the four overarching principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We work closely with outside agencies who provide extra support for children with additional needs.
Our staff regularly update their training profiles, by undertaking regular courses, such as 'Makaton' training, 'Visual Support', 'Behaviour Management' and 'Inclusion'.
Although we don't have wheelchair access, the layout can be altered to accommodate this.
We have recently obtained a Rural Development Program for England Grant which has enabled us to have a new build on Wendron School site.Opening on 11th September 2018.

Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
As part of the setting's policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs to each individual child, we take account of any special needs a child may have. The setting works to the requirements of the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice (2014)
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
We use the 2 year progress check and regular observations to highlight if a child is falling behind in any of the prime areas of learning.
- Links we have to other agencies
We are supported by the Early Years Inclusion and Improvement Team, Health Visitors and Speech and Language Therapists.
- How we support children transferring to school
We have strong links with the local primary school. We invite local foundation level teachers to visit the Pre-School and the child's key person visits the school with the children. Weekly visits are arranged during the last half term of the the Summer Term to help with transitions.

When the mediator has concluded investigations, a final meeting is held between the parent, the setting leader and the committee's chair person. Parents may approach Ofsted directly at any time during the complaints procedure.
