We have recently been awarded a three-year grant of £30,000 by BBC Children in Need. The grant will contribute to funding the role of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCO), which will help make a difference to disadvantaged children locally.
Kamelia Kids Day Nursery provides early Years education and care for pre-school children with disabilities, including those with long-term medical and life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and those with social, educational and additional needs.
The BBC Children in Need funded SENDCO role ensures that the nursery can provide specialist care and Early Years education within a safe, nurturing, inclusive and fun environment. The role will support the delivery of a curriculum focused on three prime areas of learning and development - communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional (PSE) development – in addition, the role will support the children to prepare for school.
With the project’s support, children will be empowered and motivated to make informed choices and will have the opportunity to make independent decisions by learning through play and exploration.
We are grateful to BBC Children in Need for this grant. It will allow us to give each and every child the best support we can offer. This grant is the ultimate seal of approval for the work that we do with disadvantaged children.
