Three Bears Nursery

Within Three Bears all children are supported in developing their potential at their own pace. Our structured learning programme is centred on communication, language, literacy and numeracy. We also focus on each child's physical, personal, social and emotional development. By using appropriate play activities and a high level of adult input, we offer a curriculum which leads to nationally approved learning outcomes and prepares children to progress with confidence to starting school at the age of five. Bright, spacious and friendly nursery offering excellent care and education for young children. We have a secure and private garden and also make use of an adjacent network of paths and local playgrounds.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
How do we provide for children with special educational needs and disabilities? At Three Bears we provide an inclusive environment. We aim to give children opportunities to further their development and give them the right support needed to achieve their full potential. All activities are appropriate and differentiated around individual children’s needs and interventions are put in place to support specific areas of need. Open communication with our families is encouraged from when the child starts, if you have concerns regarding your child this will be discussed with the keyperson and SENDCO. We have systems in place which monitor and review children’s development. These help us to identify where children may need additional support and Targeted Learning Plans are put into place to set additional targets for children in discussions with parents and other relevant professionals. The SENDCO’S continue to develop their own practice and continuous professional development by attending regular on-going training. They have had experience with different Specialist services including teachers to support the children and families with school transitions. They will advise on the process of applying for extra support and what support will need to be put in place. When the children start reception a transition plan will be put in place. The receiving school’s SENDCO, the child’s parents or teacher are invited to visit together before the child starts school. This plan focusses on the child’s strengths and difficulties and what support they are currently receiving.
