Shaftesbury Children's Centre Nursery

The nursery is a purpose built setting. All rooms have access to the outdoors and our philosophy is one of free flow play where children can move from the outside to indoors. We plan around the children's interests and promote independence through a child friendly and holistic approach to play and learning.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

At Shaftesbury Nursery we provide care and education for children of all abilities. We will meet with parents and carers prior to the child starting to discuss any needs and enable us to prepare a smooth transition to the setting. This may include training for staff, sourcing additional resources or liaising with other professionals. We work very closely with the Speech and Language team, Health Visitors, Portage, Dieticians and have worked with many other professionals to support children in our care. Please do ask for further information.

Record Last Updated
Most childcare providers listed in our directory are open and operating, however on occasions there may be a need to close for short periods on the advice of Public Health Dorset or due to staffing illness. Please contact providers with enquiries.
