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 are allocated a key worker when they begin attending the nursery. The key worker is responsible for completing learning journeys which contain observations and art work , alongside they have termly monitoring sheets, two year old progress check and baseline and initial profile. Observations are carried out to assess all children's learning and their stages of development. Key workers are then able to assess how children are making progress and create action plans for children that need extra help and support.

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

Learning journeys for each child are completed using observations linked to 'The Early Years foundation stage'. Then we identify next steps from these observations linked to children's interests and learning needs. Using the information to track children's individual progress and to plan activities and for children's interests, needs and abilities in daily, weekly and termly planning. This information is shared with parents and SENCO's. We also use ECAT monitoring tool which enables us to identify speech and language needs.

Links we have to other agencies

We have strong links with other nurseries / schools in our area and The Early Years Inclusion Team, Health Visitors etc.

How we support children transferring to school

We have excellent links with our local schools and invite them to visit children that are moving to their school. Learning journeys and monitoring sheets are shared with reception teachers so that they have a good understanding of each child's interests, needs and abilities. There may be additional meetings with schools to support transitions for children with SEND and their families.


Specialist skills or training our staff have

All staff are Level Three or above and have sound knowledge of early years and some many years experience working in childcare which is beneficial to out team. All staff are qualified in Paediatric First Aid and Safe guarding. All staff take part in training programmes to develop their knowledge and skills, keeping up to date with new information.

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

Children's key workers liaise with parents reqularly to ensure we have up to date information for children regarding changes to health or home life, this enables us to support children's differing needs. Key workers support children so they learn to share and take turns, value others.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We work closely with parents, giving them daily feedback, and also with any professional involved.

Our complaints policy

We work in partnership with parents and welcome suggestions on how to improve our setting. We believe they are entitled to expect courtesy and prompt attention to their needs and wishes. Any concerns would be resolved quickly by an informal approach to out staff, but we do have set of procedures for dealing with concerns.
