Magdalen Gates Preschool is a welcoming, accessible and fully inclusive setting. We offer sessional care for 3-4 year olds, fully funded from the term after their third birthday, for up to 15 hours per week. Families interested should start by looking at our website which has a wealth of information about our service and what we offer- http://www.magdalengatespreschool.com/send-info-pp/4589610310. Our preschool is fully accessible to wheelchairs. We have an excellent track record of helping children to achieve in communication skills having adopted the communication friendly spaces approach to our environment both indoors and outdoors. A visual timetable is used to prompt children to know what is coming next and to help them to express their needs. Parents are able to access their children's learning journey document at any time, and we offer regular sessions where parents are able to stay at preschool to look at the learning journey with their child, chat to their key person, and make their own contribution to the learning journey if they wish. Three of our staff are fully SENCo trained, and other staff are trained in the care and education of children with autism. We constantly update our staff's training to suit the needs of children in the setting, such as selective mutism, autism and basic signing.
