Nursery Local Offer
The nursery is an inclusive environment for all children. We want all our children to feel involved and a part of the group not to be made to feel that they are different in a negative way. All our children are unique in their own way and this will be celebrated and supported. So, we will provide the following as part of our daily routine:
- Room visual timetable
