Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

We use an online EYFS tracking system called Baby's Days which enables us to track our children's progress and log any observations. This enables us to quickly determine any children that may need extra support.

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

Our staff have specific training in areas including behaviour training, Makaton training and attachment training. By using Baby's Days online tracking system we can easily identify children that are struggling in certain areas so we can work out the best way to support them.

Links we have to other agencies

We work closely with all the relevant agencies when necessary to help support the child and famililies e.g Paediatricians, speech and language therapists and physiotherapists.

How we support children transferring to school

We have good links with our feeder schools to ensure a smooth transition to school for the children. We provide support with settling in sessions and provide the schools with documentation about the children which the families or carers are happy to be shared. We welcome the class teachers to our setting to see what practices we have in place to support the children at our setting.

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

We have a range of staff members who have had training in SENCO, epilepsy, safeguarding, First Aid, Makaton, behaviour training, Epi-pen training and attachment training. We also have staff members that have used certain systems including TAC-PAC or followed Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and personalised plans for speech and language as well as physiotherapy plans.

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

When children first start to attend our setting, we have settling in sessions where a key worker will be available to help the child feel safe and welcomed in to our setting. We also ensure that we meet with parents to discuss the children's likes and dislikes so we know lots of information about the child to enable a smooth transition in to our setting. Our setting carries out regular risk assessment plans for our activities and equipment to ensure the children are safe while with us.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We ensure we have a good relationship with parents or carers by sending out weekly emails and termly newsletters to inform them of our activities and menus. All parents are given an account for Baby's Days so they can follow their child's progress and see photos of the activities that have taken place for the week. All of our policies and plans are also accessible this way. We hold regular parent's evenings to discuss progress and any concerns that either we or the parents may have.

Our complaints policy

Our complaints policy can be found on our Baby's Days website or a written letter of complaint can be sent to our Manager which will be replied to within 28 days.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

We have wheelchair access through the use of a ramp, however, we are located in a farm house so we are limited to not being able to go upstairs with a wheelchair. Our activities for the children all happen downstairs which can be accessed by wheelchair users. We also have a discreet changing area and we provide visual supports to label the environment.

Facilities we have for personal care

All of our staff are DBS checked and we have a strong key person system in place to make sure our children feel secure at all times with us. Our discreet changing area ensures that the children are respected at all times. We also use visual sequencing strips to help the children remember personal care routines.

Specialist resources we have

We provide the use of sensory equipment and experiences for all our children on a regular basis. We use any equipment necessary for individual needs that have been identified through our tracking systems and with support from outside agencies e.g picture boards or walking frames.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We have two minibuses that allow us to take children on regular outings and provides us with the space for extra equipment such as wheelchairs or pushchairs for babies. We carry out risk assessments for trips to identify potential barriers. We try to link in themes of learning to our trips so we talk to the children about where we are going and the type of things they may see to prepare them efficiently.
