When joining the pre-school your child will be allocated a keyperson who will be responsible for their personal social and emotional needs during their time at the setting. They will work closely with the family to support your child and ensure their individual needs and interests are catered for within the setting.

The key person will be responsible for their care and well-being as well as their learning journey and profile throughout their time in the setting.


Horley Community Pre-school welcomes children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), we support them in a welcoming environment offering them the opportunities to reach their full potential. The setting works with Surrey County Council and other Outside agencies to support a child’s needs. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCO) uses a system of observing and monitoring to enable them to implement a plan to meet the child’s needs. Regular reviews and evaluation takes place to create an Individual Support Plan (ISP) for the child. We have a local offer with further information on the Surrey Early Years website.
