Description of activity
Acorn is a nursery setting which offers 5 sessions a week to children under 5 with a specific learning difficulty. The class sizes are small with a high ratio of staff who have expertise in understanding the individual needs of the child. Assessments are on-going and a multi disciplinary team add to the assessments. Intensive intervention occurs within the setting offering the child a range of strategies to support their needs and assist learning. Acorn follows the EYFS but breaks tasks down to help the child achieve. Family support is also available in helping families implement strategies used in the nursery at home. Acorn is based at Oakleigh and Colindale Schools.
