Support for childminders and other early years providers

 

There are a wide range of resources available to help support young children with SEND. You can also contact us on ‪01908 657825 for advice and guidance from Monday to Friday 9:30 to 3:30pm, every week in term time. 

Please note that if you wish to discuss a named child, parental permission should be sought.  

Children already receiving SEND support

Families of children with SEND already receiving support from the inclusion and specialist teaching team may ask to visit their childminder or early years provider.  This is so that advice about appropriate support strategies, information, training and guidance can be shared.

You may also be invited to attend the MK SEND Forum to discuss children you are supporting with SEND - this will be with an Inclusion and Intervention Worker.

Childminders are welcome to attend Children Centres with any children they care for with SEND in order to access support, groups, activities and their sensory rooms.
