How accessible is the early years setting environment? (Indoors and outdoors)?
We are based in a large detached house at the bottom of a cul-de-sac. There is a small step over the threshold. Our ground floor is level and there is a downstairs toilet with grab rails and lever taps. Our playroom is upstairs and currently there is no stair lift but once there the room has a toilet straight off the playroom.
There is a step over the threshold to the garden and decking outside..
The doorways are not accessible by a full size wheelchair.
Funding has been secured to make further adaptations to the house and obtain equipment if required for example; ramps on the steps etc.
Visual timetables etc. could be used with children requiring this support.
There is a T-Loop in place in the main lounge.
Communication with parents whose main language is not English could be via email allowing for a translation package to be used.
We will work with families to identify and address needs in collaboration with other services and agencies if necessary.
