Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
I work to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). I am constantly observing the children in my care to make sure that they are within the range for their age/stage of development. If a child appears not to be reaching the goal then I would monitor them for a few weeks more closely and then follow the appropriate actions.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
I work closely in partnership with parents. I provide activities that are age related/developmental stage and plan from this, using the Early Years Outcomes (EYO). I attend training regularly to increase my knowledge. I also attend the Local Childminding Group and other Toddler Groups so that the children in my care can mix with other children.
- Links we have to other agencies
I have contact numbers for advice and information.
- How we support children transferring to school
I have strong links with Callington Primary School. I have children in my care who already attend this school so the younger children are regularly taken to the school for pickups and drop offs. In the term before the child attends school I will talk to them about going to school and work on things that will make them ‘school ready’ such as putting on coat, sitting still and following simple instructions.
Learning and development
- Specialist skills or training our staff have
Mandatory training: paediatric first aid, Safeguarding and Child Protection, Food Hygiene. I regularly attend cluster meetings and training courses. Meeting with other childminders to help support each other, basic makaton training.
- Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being
If a child in my care had a particular health problem I would attend appropriate training, as said before I have Paediatric First Aid Training and also Epipen/Anaphylaxis shock training, also a Food Hygiene Certificate. Water is available at all times and healthy snacks are offered each day. I am aware of food allergens and monitor what snacks I provide.
- Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported
I do daily diaries for my younger children and would continue to do so until the parent no longer requires one. Verbal feedback daily regardless of whether a dairy has been filled in. Learning journeys are done for each child in my care and sent home for the parents/carers to see each term with an assessment/2 year check in.
- Our complaints policy
I have a complaints policy and an OFSTED poster on my notice board with their contact number on. If a complaint could not be resolved verbally then I would ask for it in writing.
- Alterations we have made to make our building accessible
am unable to alter my house at present. There is a small step into my hall and then rest of downstairs level, but toilet upstairs
- Facilities we have for personal care
All upstairs. Hand washing facilities available in kitchen
- Specialist resources we have
All resources are labelled with names and pictures. Pushchairs .and age appropriate car seats always available. Tactile and stimulating toys for all ages and abilities
- How we include all children in activities, such as trips
Risk assess all trips and make sure childs needs are suitably met, such as parking, toilet facilities and access.
