Karen is our Additional Support for Learning leader, and in this role, Karen works as a facilitator between nursery staff, home and outside agencies. We are guided by national legislation, assessment and evaluation of learning.

For most children, learning is supported through our usual centre planning and discussion. Occasionally, a child may require some additional and individual support which may be different to that of their peers.  Our belief is that all children at some time in their lives have some additional need, whether it be the arrival of a new baby, or a house move. Through ongoing discussions we will work towards your child having the richest experience at Cowgate possible.
