Lagan's Foundation

Introducing our new Guide for Childcare Professionals

For the last few months we have been working hard on putting together a Factsheet that can be used by any health care professional who may come into contact with complex health needs babies and children.

We are pleased to share with you our new guide which we would love to pass to nurseries and childminders all over the country. The aim is to help these childcare settings understand better the needs of children with heart defects or feeding issues and in turn hopefully assist them in opening up their doors to more families who would like their child to attend such settings.

We would love for childcare professionals to attend one of our 2 day Level 2 training courses and learn new skills and increase their knowledge of the health needs and issues faced by children that we support. With this in mind we have been working with 2 fantastic organisations who have very generously supported our project by providing access to our Factsheet to their huge membership of nurseries and childminders, spreading the word of Lagan’s Foundation even further.

A big thank you to National Day Nurseries Association  who work with a huge membership of childcare providers all over the UK to make sure children get the best possible start in life and campaigning for excellent care and early learning. They have uploaded our Factsheet for all members, parents and supporters to their website via their Free Factsheets for Parents  and their members area which is filled with lots of useful information.

Also a huge thank you to Dot2Dot Nursery Insurance  who are the UK’s leading provider of nursery and childcare Insurance, who have written a Blog for their clients on welcoming children with Heart Defects or Feeding Issues which can be viewed here. Based in Lagan’s Foundations home town of Bolton it’s fantastic to have such generous support from our local business community.

Please take a look at our Lagan’s Foundation – Guide for professionals  here and feel free to share with any childcare professionals you know. We would love to chat with them about how they can help support our families and provide further details on our TQUK Level 2 Award in Community Care for Children and Infants with Heart Defects or Feeding Issues (RQF).
