9. How accessible is the education setting?
White Tree Preschool takes place on the first floor of the Methodist Church Hall on North View. Currently there is not wheelchair access to the first floor of the building. There are no disabled toilets on the preschool level of the Church Hall. Access to the preschool garden also involves stairs. If a child requiring wheelchair access were to wish to come to the setting, we would investigate ways to make the setting accessible. We would explore ways to secure funding for equipment and facilities. We currently have a limited budget as White Tree Preschool is a non-profit organisation.
We make every effort to communicate effectively with parents and carers whose first language is not English. We try to find key phrases to help us communicate with parents and children, and also use Makaton and visual symbols where helpful. We have made use of people in the community who speak the parent’s language to help us on occasion. We have used a translate programme to help us write observations about children in their home language. We make use of video recording during the session to help us pass on information to parents about how their children played that day.
