Jess Hills Childcare
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Nanpean. I live with my husband, our two children and our family dog. I provide a safe and nurturing environment and implement a holistic and fun approach to children’s learning and development.

I am a member of PACEY and the Quality Childminding in Cornwall network.

I work with parents to ensure children are happy and to carry over family values and routines as closely as possible.

Every child is treated as an individual. I carry out regular observations to keep track of childrens progress. These are used to plan activities that will support personal developmental needs. Children's progress is recorded daily in a learning journal to enable them to share and celebrate thier achievements.

I have a fun child led approach to create new experiences and teach new skills. I offer a wide range of activities at home to support childrens learning and take daily trips out to local groups and venues. 

I aim for every child to be exeeding in all areas of development when they leave my care to start school.

I have completed safeguarding training and have procedures in place for if I ever have concerns about a child.

Daily, weekly and monthly information through journals and observations, these are shared and discussed with paents as it suits them; emails, phone, taking journals home, meetings, chats at the end of the day ect....

Our complaints policy

I give all parents a copy of my complaints procedure.  This explains they can make a complaint verbally or in writing to me and or directly to Ofsted (Ofsted complaints poster is displayed in my porch)

I welcome feedback and any suggestions from parents. There is an optional feedback section on weekly progress sheets.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

Activities are planned in advance to suit children's differing developmental stages. e.g. all children can participate in painting, this provides the opportunity for messy play, mark making, learning colours, shapes, to draw in detail, write ect 

Trips out are also planned in advance and risk assesed. I have car seats / double buggy and will purchase more as needed.
