Dolphins Childcare

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

Dolphins Childcare provides a happy, safe, stimulating and enthusiastic, multi-cultural environment for all children to play, learn and develop freely.

We have funded childcare places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds of up to 15 hours per week. 

We have a wonderful qualified and experienced staff team who are all NVQ trained and ensure that the children are cared for in the best possible way through a safe learning environment.

During our sessions we provide stimulating activities based around the EYFS that support all children of all ages development and make sure all children's individual needs are met.

Dolphins carry out a variety of small group activities such as : Forest School, Cooking, Multi-Sensory, letters & Sounds, Attention and Listening, Speech and Language and Sharing fun. 

SEND information 

Lloyd Welsh

We have trained to gain a wide experience of working with children with SEND and although we have not had a large number or children with SEN, we have the skills to identify any children who may need additional support and supported this with in house strategies.

In our setting we carry out:

  • Multi-Sensory Song Time
  • Playing and Learning to Socialise Program (PALS)
  • Attention & Listening groups.
  • Speech and Language groups.
  • Lets talk together groups (LTT)
  • Speech and Language screening tests

Please contact us and discuss your child's needs and requirements so we can assist you with our current skills that we have to support your child in the setting.


We ensure all staff that are not SENCO trained have a clear knowledge/understanding of all SEN matters.

The environment is all based on one floor which allows wheelchair access throughout the setting. Toilets accessible to all and if needed we have a large disabled toilet to access in the building.

Although we are an opened plan setting and don't have any limitations in regards to access, please come and visit us before hand so we can make any necessary reasonable adjustments to support your child's care.
