Additional Needs

Admin —  August 18, 2014

Children with Specific Requirements

All children have specific requirements at some stage in their lives. For some it is a temporary requirement that they need additional support due to changes in their lives e.g. starting Nursery, moving house, birth of a sibling, change in a parent’s relationship, potty training etc., whilst others may require more ongoing support. Whatever the requirement it is the intention of the Play Centre to respond to a child’s specific requirement, temporary or permanent on an individual basis and in liaison with their parent/carer and other agencies as appropriate.
