Nursery and School Support 

Sending your child to nursery or school can be a daunting thought however we are here to provide whatever support we can to both you and your child's setting. 

With your consent Louise will make initial contact with the setting and arrange an initial visit. The aim of the visit is to discuss their knowledge of Down Syndrome and provide information where needed, suggest adaptations the setting may need to make, training which they may find useful and answer any questions which they may have. 

They are welcome to email us at any time should they have any questions. 

Louise will liaise regularly with the setting and will aim to visit termly where necessary. 

For children who attend the developmental sessions with Gwen, with your consent, Louise will discuss and share your child's key targets and provide resources so they can support your child to work towards their goals as part of their daily routine. 

Your child's setting will be placed on our mailing list and will be notified of any training opportunities or updates. 

Shine21 can also offer support and attendance during your child's My Support Plan (MSP) and Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP), click here for more information.
