Situation

Our mission statement is To relieve children with learning, physical or sensory disabilities and to advance the education and physical development of the said children. The lack of pre-school 1:1 specialist care in Bridgend for disabled children and those with complex needs means that many are left in isolation at home until they reach school age. Children aged 0-4 yrs can achieve much more if they have access to quality care and play opportunities, allowing them to reach their full potential

Solution

Disabled children and children with complex needs require more intensive childcare support when in the day nursery. The level of need for the majority of our children requires them to have 1:1 support. This in real terms means we employ a higher level of staff than a mainstream nursery to satisfy the ratio of staff to child. The money we raise will allow us to provide this specialist care at a heavily subsidised rate for families of the children
