I am interested in the approach of the son-rise programme.  
Click the son-rise logo above to find out more
I was delighted to get the opportunity to give this information to former Shadow Education Secretary: Tristham Hunt MP, Jeremy Corbyn, MP, Jeremy Lefroy MP & Angela Rayner MP
It contains strategies which work well for both babies, pmld children and autistic children and is in-line with speech therapy ideology.
In essence the programme can be adapted so that the adult joins the child's explorative play to aid the child's speech and general development enhancing both EYFS learning outcomes and national curriculum outcomes and was found by listening to parents.  The programme is American.


Exclusive, tailor-made tuition and childcare in an award winning learning environment exists at Wildwood Childcare Ltd.

Comments from parents: 

"I have nothing but gratitude to yourself for giving so freely of your time.  You were wonderful as a teacher and at belting tunes out on the piano.  I am grateful that you believed in an alternative way that in the end DID help X when convention refused this".

star rating: 5*****

I really like the range of activities that Louise undertakes with x.  They are diverse and she treats him like an individual as opposed to simply like 'a baby'.  Louise's service is invaluable - you can't put a price on it!

Claire Orange: 5*****  parent of pre-school child

I met Louise through the tots group on a Monday and Friday and she is brilliant!! Me and my little girl really enjoy going, there is always so much to do, crafts, messy play, going outdoors, stories and songs, learning about different foods, and most importantly snack! We would recommend these groups to everyone, thanks Louise for all the hard work you put in �

Serena Green reviewed Wildwood Childcare5 *****
I feel very lucky that you have been willing to take on 'x'.  You certainly have nurture and attachment at heart

Laura: 5*****
I would like to say a huge thankyou to you, for helping x to become the best she can be.  She has a very bright future ahead of her.  We can finally see light at the end of the tunnel.  She is so settled and happy with you.  With your help, support and constant encouragement she has blossomed into a vibrant, happy, confident little sweetie.  Her talking is brilliant.  She has achieved so much with you.   X is going from strength to strength in everything she is doing.
Mrs Wharton, parent of an 8 year old: 5*****
Well I didn't have any complaints, Mrs Nixon was always very good with X
Parent of child at Marshlands Special School: 5*****

I was most humbled to notice that Stafford's Speech and Language Unit at X laminated my words and placed them outside the clinic -

Wildwood Childcare assists children to grow, learn and develop surrounded by smiles and laughter, as well as help parents feel safe and nurtured. My family appreciates how difficult it is for parents to select and trust their childcare provider. 

Wildwood Childcare is founded by an experienced primary teacher who is a director of the Education Company, Ofsted-registered childminder, piano teacher and nutritionist.  Here, your child is in safe hands.

Louise Nixon has been through an enhanced disclosure with the criminal records bureau and has been cleared to work with children.  Examples of outstanding observation reports here.
