Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
Little Beebles staff carry out observations of all the Children in our care. Each child has a key worker who works with the parent to gain trust and support for the parent and sharing information about each individual child.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
All new children are invited to visit the setting before they start. We then ask the parents to assist us by giving information about their child, which we would then use to identify each child's needs e.g. child's likes and dislikes. We work to support your child by carrying out observational assessments which will then identify where your child's individual needs are. We work alongside other early years professionals, if there is a need for additional help and support for your child we would then with the parents permission make measures to take the next steps.
- Links we have to other agencies
We have good links with many agencies and are able to ask for support and information when needed. We have good links with the speech and language therapist and work with parents on and if the child has cultural needs.
- How we support children transferring to school
We have excellent links with the local school as we are based on-site. The reception Teacher visits the pre-school during the year and during the summer term we will visit the Reception class at least once a week to meet the Teacher, to get used to new surroundings, and for the staff to talk to the Teacher about each child. The children would then have at least four taster sessions with their parents after school to help make transition smooth and enjoyable.
Learning and development
- Specialist skills or training our staff have
All staff have visual aids training and some knowledge of makaton, and staff would attend further training on any subject if needed. Staff have been on safeguarding and child protection courses. All staff have First Aid training.
- Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being
Staff would attend training if the child has specific needs and would work closely with the parent. As and when specific childhood diseases occur e.g Norovirus, Chicken pox we provide information to parents. Our Welcome packs contain guidelines on all childhood diseases. We keep accident record and medication records. We have policies on healthy eating and work within the EYFS for the child's health and well-being.
- Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported
Daily chats to parents at the end of sessions, termly reports where parents visit and talk to their child's keyworker on their child's next steps. Parents have input to child's their Learning Journey at any time. As do the children.
- Our complaints policy
We have a complaints policy available to read at any time, but also it is included in the parents welcome pack at the start of their child's admission.
- Alterations we have made to make our building accessible
We would make every effort to make necessary changes to how the child, staff or parent could access the building. The school's main entrance has a ramp and then level access to the Pre-School room. The School has an accessible Toilet, and there is an accessible parking space very close to the Pre-School room.
- Facilities we have for personal care
We have two low level toilets and wash basins for the children. There is also access to a changing table. We would try to meet any needs we found necessary.
- Specialist resources we have
We have some sensory equipment, we can loan equipment from Council departments such as Speech and Language Department. We also have some multicultural toys and equipment.
- How we include all children in activities, such as trips
We would make risk assessments before any outings and we have a risk assessments folder which is updated every term to ensure safety and changes within our setting. We have good child to staff ratios required by Ofsted and parents are also asked to give support on outings. Our insurance covers us for trips and outings.
