Special Needs

Kids Academy Childcare is committed to the integration of children with special needs.

Our philosophy is that children with special needs have a right to be educated and to develop to their full potential alongside other children. Everyone stands to gain if all children are allowed to share the same opportunities and helped to overcome any disadvantages they may have to face.

Integration will be achieved with:

Access

  • Wider Doors available for wheelchairs
  • The play area is all one level
  • We will assess each child’s needs in terms of access and adapt our facilities as appropriate

Support and Expertise

  • We have a designated Special Needs Coordinator
  • There are several members of the staff team who are experienced in the care of children with special needs
  • Outside agencies, including the Health and Education Authorities, will be called on to give advice and support and the staff team will receive training where appropriate
  • Staff work together with parents/main carers as partners to give day to day care for the child and parents/carers will be given support by all the staff team

We ensure that all children are treated as equals at Kids Academy nurseries and are encouraged to take part in every aspect of the day nursery and preschool activities. All children will be involved in the daily routine, e.g., garden, music and movement, trips to the shops. When outings are being organised, children with special needs will always be included. Wherever possible we will promote positive images of those with special needs.
