Special Educational Needs
We are fully committed to the inclusion of all children and believe that this is beneficial to both the mainstream children and those with special needs that they play and learn together. We have long experience and expertise in working with children with varying special needs, and involve the parents, who know their child best, in every aspect of the child’s learning at nursery.
We have two Surrey County Council funded types of provision for children with special needs and we have a different admissions procedures to the 3-5s nursery for these. The staff in both groups work very closely together to plan the children’s learning and are overseen by the special needs coordinator (SENCO). Click here to view the SEND Admissions Procedure.
Our Special Needs Support Centre - SNSC caters for a variety of additional needs, including autism. Children may have mild physical difficulties. The children will also have speech language and communication needs. To find out more visit our SNSC page.
Our Pre-School Centre for Speech, Language and Communication Needs - PSLCN caters for children who have an inpairment in their speech and languge and can function in the mainstream nursery without the need for 1:1 support. To find out more visit our PSLCN page.

The settling in session was very well set out and gave us a chance to meet the staff and see what would be available to our child when she started. The whole process from receiving the paperwork to actually getting our child to start at Dorking was all informative and put our minds at ease.”
