Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

Continuous observation and assessment process, tracking results against EYFS development guidance. 

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

Working closely with parents and carers to ensure they are well informed of their child's current interests, stages of development and routine. Strong relationships enable information to be exchanged freely and openly.

Links we have to other agencies

Partnership working with local health visiting team, social services and local primary schools and nurseries.

How we support children transferring to school

Transition meetings and visits to the new settings, taking photos to enable children to discuss and revisit the experience with their familiar carers. Detailed learning records are shared of each child's progress providing a solid background to the child's learning journey and preferences. 

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

Happy to attend relevant courses if required

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

I provide a mixture of indoor and outdoor play opportunities, with an awareness of current early years daily physical activity guidelines. Walking is a part of everyday, healthy eating is promoted and being hands on growing our own fruit and vegetables only encourages this.  

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Daily contact with parents both written (daily diary) and verbal. Learning journals and regular learning and development summaries where each child's progress is measured against EYFS.

Our complaints policy

Complaints policy available on request.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

We have sloped access to the front door.

Facilities we have for personal care

Own potty, change mats, bedding, towels, face cloth, combs etc. However currently our only bathroom is upstairs.

Specialist resources we have

We have a huge selection of indoor and outdoor toys, games and books. Books in different languages,  toys promoting cultural diversity and promoting equal opportunities 


All children are able to play with all toys. No toys are exclusively for boys or girls. 

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

All trips, excursions and outings are fully risk assessed ensuring they are suitable for all based on each child's ability, age and stage of development.


Weather need not prevent access as we have a large selection of waterproof suits, trousers and wellies, hats and gloves just in case someone forgets to bring theirs.
