Little Lions Playgroup

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

At Little Lion’s playgroup we offer a warm and caring learning environment for children aged 2-4 years. We have full-time and part-time spaces from 8.45am to 3.45pm term time only.

Children have the opportunity to develop skills and make achievements all while playing and taking part in fun activities. Our staff support each child’s development making sure that activities are at their individual level of learning development. We encourage children to have a positive view of themselves and develop social skills by playing with other children.

Our setting is based in Lionel Primary school in the early year’s department. We are on the ground floor and have access to a large garden area that we use every day. We encourage children to physically challenge themselves while staying safe.

Our qualified staff work closely with parents to make sure we are meeting all their children’s needs. We ask parent s to send in observations of achievements the children have made outside the setting. We send out newsletters so parents know what the children will be doing each half term.
