Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

All children have an entry baseline assessment with ongoing observations which includes a two year old check, where applicable. These link to the EYFS development stages. Every child has a key worker allocated to them. We work to build good relationships and share information with families and carers and other professionals. Our Senco works with all the children.


If we think a child may need extra help or care, we discuss this with the parent or carer and together we make a plan to benefit the chlld's needs.

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

We have termly tracking systems and regular parent/carers meetings. We liaise with key workers and share any concerns. IEP's are written and reviewed as needed. We attend "Team around the Child`' meetings. We follow recommendations by other professionals . All children are allocated a key worker who can closely monitor their children's development, and if any child chld needs extra support that will be identified, and further help provided.  When children join us at two years old, they are given a two year old check to flag up any areas where extra support may be needed, for example in developing confidence or independence, or speech fluency. We value all contributions from parents, and have a suggestion box available for anonymous comments and suggestions.

Links we have to other agencies

WE have links to: Senior Locality Senco's, Early Years Inclusion Team, Speech and Language therapists, Educational Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Portage Services and Health Visitors

How we support children transferring to school

We have a transition policy and we invite the primary school teachers to meet the children in our setting. We attend transition meetings alongside parents and with other professionals for the children who require support.

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

All staff have Paediatric First Aid training and have safeguarding training to the correct level for their responsibility. Senior staff have completed Senco Induction training, and Behaviour management courses. Other training includes Makaton, Sensory Processing, Every Child a Talker, and Children in Care training.

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

We complete the children's two year old checks. We promote healthy eating, and healthy lifestyles with our policies, and offer regular physical play both indoors and outside. We allow the children to be in control of their activities, and do not push the children into doing things they are not interested in. There is water and milk available at all times, and healthy snacks on display, which the children can access at any time. We encourage them to wash their hands frequently, and before snacks and meals. The children are encouraged to care for themselves, put on their own clothes and boots for wet wear,  tidy up behind them, and be kind to the other children in the setting. We encourage the children to choose their own activities from a huge range of specially designed Montessori equipment, which provide interesting concrete ways to understand maths, science, geography, etc, so the children are happy, fulfilled and busy. We are always on hand to gently support a child who is struggling with any task. We never let a child experience failure until he has a good chance to succeed. The children are not segregated into ages but work together as multi-age group. This has a huge benefit for both the younger and older child and friendships, empathy and harmony becomes apparent.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We have daily informal conversations and regular parent/teacher meetings. Parents will be informed if we have any concerns about their child's learning or development or welfare and wellbeing. We have cohorts which track the children's progress and the parents see these.

Our complaints policy

We have a complaints policy in place. Initially we advise parents to speak to the manager.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

We have a sloped ramp to access the building and flat access to the garden area.

Facilities we have for personal care

Nappy changing facilities, in a private room

Specialist resources we have

We provide resources for the individual children as needed. Our extensive Montessori equipment promotes sensory development. A lot of the equipment is designed to be self correcting, so the children can work in dependently.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We would increase the ratio of staff to children, but we rarely carry out visits off the premises.
