Welcome to our Pre-School Resources Page
If you are teaching or supporting a child with Type 1 Diabetes then we hope we can help you to gain a better understanding of what it all means for the child and how you can best support them to reach their full potential in pre-school.
We’ve created a series of films and resources to model best practice for supporting children living with Type 1 Diabetes and attending pre-school, and we hope these will support you and the child(ren) in your care.
These resources have been funded by the National Lottery’s Community Fund
