Resources and Support

You family is part of our community and we are happy to offer support and advice on any issue effecting you, directly and indirectly regarding your child’s learning and care. Though we specialise in child development we can signpost you to other services and make referrals to others. For example, we can share information on groups at local children’s centres, give you contact details for who to ask for advice on benefits, make referrals to the family wellbeing service, refer to speech therapy, providing supporting information for DLA applications and sharing guidance.  

Any of our team are happy to help, but your first ports of call are your child’s key person or Alice. You can catch us at drop off or collection time or let us know if you would like a longer chat and we’ll arrange a time if not possible straight away.
