Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

I would gather information from parents and from observations of the child. I implement a two year check and make assessments through out each term.  I provide 2 and 3 year funded places.

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

I have done makaton training and use Makaton symbols and pictures in my setting, but would do further training if needed to meet the needs of a child. I have done positive behaviour training and communication training.  I have attended sensory training and workshops. 

Links we have to other agencies

Nurseries and Pre-schools, social workers and inclusion workers and any other professionals required for the best outcome of the children.

How we support children transferring to school

I visit the local schools and offer learning journeys and assessments that I have for each child.

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

Senco training is up to date.


Makaton training


Network with other childminders and professionals to share advice.

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

I offer a safe well risk assessed setting, that caters for all children with lots of space.  My safequarding and first aid is up to date and constantly updated.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Parents have a daily diary to use.  Children and parents can take their learning journeys home any weekend they would like to add to or just look at. I am available to parents to chat or arrange a time to chat when ever suits.  I give out  questionnaires. Parents and I discuss targets verbally with each other.  I hope to gain a close relationship with all parents with a respect for each others confidentiality and work.

Our complaints policy

All parents receive my policy on complaints to read.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

Free access to inside and outdoors for inclusive play.

Facilities we have for personal care

All self-care routines are promoted such as hand washing after toileting.  Nappy changing facilities in the bathroom to promote privacy.  Help is offered where needed and equipment can be obtained where necessary.

Specialist resources we have

Large accessible playroom with many resources to meet all ages needs.  I will obtain any resources if needed.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

The children and I talk about any trips we will be going on and use photos and books to give them information.  I risk assess the outing and use buggies, reins and wheelchairs where needed so that all children can be included and they will all benefit from the experience.
