At West Rise Nursery we welcome children with additional needs and are committed to the inclusion of all children.  

We recognise that some children may have additional needs that may require particular help, intervention and support needs may be short-lived for a particular time in the child’s life or may require longer-term support.  At all times we will, alongside each child’s parents and any relevant professionals, share information, identify needs and help the child and family access the support they need.
