YOUNG children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) will benefit from a city council investment of nearly £900,000 in refurbishing their nursery. Pindar Road specialist day nursery, in New Parks, offers tailored support for up to 34 children with complex needs, from the ages of two to five. It is run by Leicester City Council, and has been rated as outstanding by Ofsted since 2008. Now, the nursery is set to benefit from new facilities in an £895,000 refurbishment programme, organised and approved by the city council, using money from the council’s capital budget…. Assistant city mayor for education, Cllr Elly Cutkelvin, said: “We’re very proud of our Ofsted-outstanding special needs nursery at Pindar Road. We know that the staff who work here are extremely dedicated and strive to always provide the best opportunities for children with complex special educational needs and disabilities…. “We are extremely excited about this project and the positive impact it will have on the lives of SEND children and their families across Leicester.”…
