Portage Stamp of Approval

Congratulations to Patricia Hunter, manager of The Nest Neighbourhood Nursery and her staff members for achieving the Portage Stamp of Approval.

This is awarded to Early Year’s settings who have demonstrated they deliver inclusive Early Years Education based upon the Portage Principles. Patricia and her staff members attended training to increase their knowledge of the Portage Model and demonstrated how they use the Principles in their daily practice when supporting children with additional needs. They completed all the required elements of the national assessment process facilitated locally by the Torbay Portage Service and the Early Years Advisory Teacher for Inclusion.  

This award demonstrates The Nest’s commitment to inclusion and to developing better outcomes for Early Years children with Special Educational Needs.
