Mrs Tanya Powell

Here at The Pink House I have made a child-friendly environment that creates a safe place to learn, play and develop through activities and resources at the children’s level. The children have a free flow between the play room and sitting room. We have a garden where we will grow flowers, fruits and vegetables from seeds in the 'allotment' area, the children can use watering cans with supervision. There is plenty of space to run and drive the little tikes cars. A sports area to use gross motor skills hitting, kicking and rolling different balls. There is a lovely shade that makes for a nice picnic spot or a place for conversation. The decking has an area for exploring and designing with shells, stones and pine cones with other natural objects that we find on our walks.

School pickup
St Mark's CE Primary School : AM/PM
Nursery/Pre-School pickup
Generally, I do not have access to our family car due to my husband using it to get to his teaching job in Wareham. If parents drop their children off at The Pink House then I can walk the children to St Marks School, Swanage.
£5.50 per Hour
Cost variations
If your child requires breakfast, a packed lunch and/or an evening meal then these will be an extra charge of £1 to £2 per meal. There will be no charge for any days out that I plan but If you would like to make a contribution then it will be a greatly appreciated donation. Thank you.

Wheelchair accessible
The Pink House has a side gate entrance that can be used for wheelchair and pushchair access. A ramp would be required and provided if wheelchair access is needed to the house.
Parking availability information
There is plenty of road parking outside The Pink House but during school drop off and collection times the spaces become limited.
Toilet facility information
The family bathroom with toilet is on the ground floor but the house is elevated so a ramp will be required to access the house.
Other Facilities
All of the learning resources and play equipment can be used outside to make it accessible for all children. There are quiet spaces with bean bags as well as sensory areas of the garden. The house and garden will be regularly reviewed and updated to individual needs.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

The Pink House has a level garden that is wheelchair and pushchair accessible through a wide gate at the side of the house. I was the deputy manager of a lovely nature nursery where I was also the SEND co-coordinator. I have been on a variety of courses and plan to continue my personal development and knowledge through future training. If there is an educational, behavioural or medical condition that your child has I will ensure that I gain the most understanding possible and I also invite parents to meet with me to talk about any concerns they may have.
