Special Needs

This is the start…

On starting at Country Mice, the Head of Nursery, and/or the child’s key worker, will give you a small Welcome Pack to fill in about your child, to help us to share information about your child’s strengths and needs.

The Local Offer

The purpose of a local offer is to enable parents and carers see more clearly what services are available for children with SEND in their area and how to access them. The process extends to early years settings and all the information below -and through the menu- forms our local offer and shows how we have, for many years, provided for children with special educational needs and disabilities.
