SEND Support

How we can support children with special educational needs and disabilities at Ashton-Under-Lyne

Little Giggles offer something that is truly unique to the early years sector. We have worked hard to ensure the provision that we offer is completely inclusive and encompasses the true meaning of equality education, facilities and care that all children are entitled to.

Support offered to children with special educational needs is lacking nationally within the early years sector and Little Giggles are blessed to have a highly experienced Special Educational Needs Coordinator and Management team to support families and children through their educational journey who work in conjunction with our Little Laughters room until children are ready to start school.

Within our Little Laughters room we have a highly qualified practitioners to teach and support children to reach their full and true potential, surrounded by specialised provision, sensory and top of the range equipment, quality teaching and learning interactions from our practitioners and an additional sensory room to meet children’s requirements.

Our practitioners are qualified to support children with ADHD, Autism and Sensory Processing, this is not a limited list and our practitioners are continuously developing by attending training supported by Little Giggles; to ensure we are offering the very best for our children.
