Cross, Mrs Sharon Louise
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)

Coronavirus status: Open for key workers and vulnerable children

I have been registered since 2001 & live with my husband.  I ensure that a range of activities are available to suit the childrens age & stage of development. These include role play, messy play, books, craft, construction toys, sensory & exploratory play. I also have a safe enclosed garden area for the children to play in. I received the grade of Outstanding on  my last 3 Ofsted inspections with the last one being 19th February 2020.

I am able to provide 2,3 and 4 year old funding.

I am a member of QCC (Quality Childminding in Cornwall)

Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support

Regular training updated and Senco meetings attended

How we identify and support children's learning and development needs

I do a Baseline assessment when they first come to my setting, and then use an on line learning journal to to track the childrens progress.

Links we have to other agencies

I have links with nurseries and schools, and would link to other health professionals if required

How we support children transferring to school

I help the parents with the transition stage and support them. Their childs learning journals are provided for the parents to share with the school


Specialist skills or training our staff have

I update my safeguarding certificate every 3 years, and continuously update any relevant training

Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being

I offer healthy eating, and regularly take the children out to local woods, parks, beach toddler groups and soft play centres

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

I do a daily diary which lets the parents know what their child has done through the day, and the parents have access to the learning journals

Our complaints policy

Any complaint should be made to myself, and I have a policy in place which states I will notify Ofsted of any such complaint.

I will try and resolve any issues, but the parents will be given Ofsteds address and contact number should they wish to take things further


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible


Facilities we have for personal care

I have a bathroom which the children use, and a potty and step so they can reach to wash their hands. Anti bacterial soap is used, and individual changing mats for nappy changing

Specialist resources we have

I have a range of multi cultural toys and books, and source other specialist toys if required

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

All children are included in all activities and trips we do. I have comprehensive list of risk assessments, and use buggies or reigns as required. All the toys in the play room are accessible to all the children
