Mrs Diane Penny

I have over 25 years experience with young children. I encourage creative / messy play and other activities including outings to the beach, woods, parks. We have season tickets to other attractions which include Monkey world and Kingston Maurward. I have a large playroom and children can play outside all year round. I work with an assistant.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

I have worked with children for more than 25 years and in this time I have identified different aspects of SEN. I have attended many courses and talked and listened to many professionals together with personal experiences. I can help support parents / carers. All children in my care are loved and nurtured, learning through play, they develop at their own pace in a safe environment that can be adjusted to their individual needs.
