Services

Currently we offer the following services.

Little Ones Kindy [LOK]

This is a kindergarten provision for preschool boys and girls aged between three and five years old who present with social communication and behaviour difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders/aspergers.

Playing in the Sand

These sessions are specifically structured to aid children's development, yet give ample opportunity for them to explore and develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. The children's needs are met on an individual basis. The Foundation Stage is followed together with the principles of Every Child Matters to provide a relevant and balanced curriculum tailored to meet each child's particular needs. We enjoy a group 'share and snack' time and have fun with our music, song and story times. This is a small group limited to six children per session set in a safe, organised and child appropriate environment.

Our qualified/registered practitioners work in partnership with the parents and carers to consider and agree appropriate support and extension of skills. Speech and Language therapists specialising in ASD and associated conditions can assist us where necessary with implementing strategies to meet the child's individual needs.

If you are interested in this group please contact us.
