All staff at TOG are, or are training to be at least level 3 qualified in child care development and are also highly skilled in supporting children with a variety of special educational needs including physical and medical disabilities. We use a Somerset total communication approach which includes signing and the use of photos and provide a stimulating environment, planning for each childs individual needs in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage.
“Children form strong attachments with all staff, particularly their key person'. (OFSTED INSPECTION REPORT April 2014).

TOG’s Management Committee
TOG is a registered charity and is run by a Voluntary Management Committee. We warmly welcome and actively seek Parent representatives on the Committee so that Parents can help drive forwards the services we provide.
An AGM is held every November to which all Parents/Carers are invited and if any parent is interested in joining the Committee then please speak to Sandy, Ann or Feah. Meetings are held once every half term and usually in the evenings.
