Your child’s development

There may be a time where you or your partner are concerned about your child’s growth, development or behaviour and we at the Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery will do everything we can to support and guide you.

As you may already be aware, the Gooseberry Bush have a SENDCo Team that work closely with the children and our nursery nurse team to support the children in their continuous development.

If you do have a concern about your child’s development, we ask that you speak with your child’s key worker or one of the SENDCO Team so we can allocate time and resources as needed.
