Supporting your child's development
At Cygnets we support all unique children to reach their full potential. We plan a child led curriculum in order to spark children.s interest and curiosity. Leading to engaged active learners.
Our Big Idea is our focus for a two week period. It all centres around a story book taken from a theme that are children are particularly interested in at that time. It can be anything from dinosaurs to thinking about our families. We use this story to engage children in the seven areas of learning and use a child's interest to support the progression of their strengths a weakness

The role of the SENCO in early years provision
The EYFS framework requires early years providers to have arrangements in place for meeting children’s SEN. Those in group provision are expected to identify a SENCO. A SENCO is required in order to ensure the detailed implementation of support for children with SEN. This individual receives qualification for SEN Co-ordination or relevant experience.
The role of the SENCO involves:
• ensuring all practitioners in the setting understand their responsibilities to children with SEN and the setting’s approach to identifying and meeting SEN
• advising and supporting colleagues
• ensuring parents are closely involved throughout and that their insights inform action taken by the setting, and
• liaising with professionals or agencies beyond the setting
