Mrs Emma Grimes

I offer a warm homely environment, have a commitment to Forest childcare including weekly Muddy Mondays, I also offer an array of loose parts to encourage your child to explore and use imaginations with no limits. I closely follow the Curiosity approach to childcare, encouraging children how to think not what to think, and love the freedom this gives us. We attend playgroups and go on regular outings. The dedicated playroom and garden provide a wealth of opportunities for your child to develop and thrive.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

My aim is to ensure that all children are cared for in a loving and supportive environment, and through this I aim to ensure all children reach their full potential. All children are closely monitored and their development monitored so any additional needs can be noted quickly and an action plan put in place to support each individual. I work closely with parents and other agencies, and with their co-operation complete regular progress checks to ensure the provisions in place are effective. I am happy to undergo specialist training when the need arises and ensure that all activities are fully inclusive.

Record Last Updated
Most childcare providers listed in our directory are open and operating, however on occasions there may be a need to close for short periods on the advice of Public Health Dorset or due to staffing illness. Please contact providers with enquiries.
