Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

I work with parents to identify gaps in children's learning or any delays I am concerned about. I refer children to speech and language and the lead SENCO in my srea.

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

I follow children's interests to provide activities then look for any delay in their learning using learning journeys and termly trackers. 

Links we have to other agencies

I have worked with the speech and language and lead SENCO teams with previous children.

How we support children transferring to school

I do a report for schools, I offer to accompany children and parents when visiting schools and meet with or speak to teachers by email or phone. 


Specialist skills or training our staff have

I have recently attended a 25 hour time out for ASD/ ADHD course, I did a course on encouraging speech and language in the setting, attending SENCO childminding conferences. I also have a son going through the ASD diagnosis process so have a lot of experience of strategies. 

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

I have a healthy eating policy, ensure children get regular exercise and work with children's individual needs. 

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Text through the day, chatting to parents, parent's meetings.

Our complaints policy

I ask parents to give any complaints in writing as soon as reasonably possible which I will ten look into. I will give parents a reply within a week and would inform Ofsted.


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

I live in a bungalow with wide doorways

Facilities we have for personal care

I live in a bungalow with wide doors so the bathroom is accessible. 

Specialist resources we have

I am trained in Makaton signing and live in a bungalow with wide doors.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

I base trips out around the children and their interests so would always adapt trips based on children I have each day.
