Our outdoor learning area is a calm and welcoming space, where children learn to further risk assess, by using tools. Staff are trained to teach children to do this safely.

Our manager is forest school trained, enabling us to have outdoor learning sessions, throughout the week.

Our day is organised, to include all children in the activities, this is adapted for all needs and ability of the children. Our manager has an NVQ 3 in SEND in the early years, she uses this to train staff and to help them identify where a child may need some targeted support.

Parents are fully supported, in all areas of SEND and our manager, is available to discuss all parent SEND concerns. We recognise that having a child, who may benefit from additional support, can be daunting and a difficult emotional process to go through. ABC aim to support our children and their families, through this process. Hence preparing them for their future school life adventures.

Staff are excellent role models for the children, by having a calm and enthusiastic approach, they nurture their independence to support children develop their self-esteem. We have a high regard for training and all staff are qualified in first aid and to NVQ 2 & 3 level (or in training for an NVQ).

Staff thoroughly enjoy their day, ensuring that all children are having a good day and that we are aware of each child's learning and development, you can keep up to date daily by visiting our facebook page.
