Bracknell Forest Local Directory

Taylor, Shelley

I live in Birch Hill, Bracknell and have two Sons. I have paediatric first aid training, Safeguarding, Food Hygiene, a Health & Social Care qualification and a BA (Hons) degree. I am registered with OFSTED and the Local Authority. I love caring for children, encouraging them to learn and develop at their own pace and building their confidence.

I closely follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guidelines which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. I monitor their progress and put next steps in place to ensure they are on track for their age range. This will be available to parents. I carry out development checks at 2 years old which will be provided to parents to take to their 2 year check with the Health Visitor. I am educating myself on festivals, celebrations and public holidays in other countries so that I can plan activities to involve those relevant to the children in my care. I provide a fun, caring environment for your child. I work closely with parents, Schools (with written permission from parents) and their children to offer care suited to their individual needs. We are out and about everyday exploring the world around us, visiting parks, farms, woods, toddler groups, library, mixing with other children and playing in the fully enclosed, secure garden. I live within a 10 minute walk to The Look Out and 15 minutes to South Hill Park with a number of other parks and play areas along the way. A variety of toys and books are fully accessible in the lounge area for all ages groups and messy play such as painting, crafts and other messy tasks takes place fully supervised in the kitchen/dining area or garden. Both indoor and outdoor toys are provided and outdoor activities are encouraged such as gardening, water/sand games, growing seeds, flowers and learning what happens during the process.

My setting will offer a mixture of adult led activities as well as child initiated play. I will concentrate on areas in the observations that may have gaps to ensure that all children have the chance to reach their full potential. I carry out risk assessments in the home setting and for each outdoor trip, monitor them regularly and update if changes have occurred. I am happy to offer transition assistance by sharing learning journeys with new Schools (only with written permission from parents) and work with children to overcome anxieties.

I have a compliments/complaints book for parents to fill out and feedback questionnaires available along with a parent pack which details all the information you might find useful about my policies and procedures. It is important to me to build good relationships with parents in order to meet the needs of their children. We will discuss planning, next steps and feedback by daily/weekly chats, emails, texts to diary notes and copies of observations that I make.

Local Offer Description

I live in Birch Hill, Bracknell and have a young Son. I have paediatric first aid training, Safeguarding, Food Hygiene, a Health & Social Care qualification and a BA (Hons) degree. I am registered with OFSTED and the Local Authority. I love caring for children, encouraging them to learn and develop at their own pace and building their confidence.

I provide a fun, caring environment for your child. I work closely with parents, Schools (with written permission from parents) and their children to offer care suited to their individual needs.

I live within a 10 minute walk to The Look Out and 15 minutes to South Hill Park with a number of other parks and play areas along the way.

Both indoor and outdoor toys are provided and outdoor activities are encouraged such as gardening, water/sand games, growing seeds, flowers and learning what happens during the process.

It is important to me to build good relationships with parents in order to meet the needs of their children. We will discuss planning, next steps and feedback by daily/weekly chats, emails, texts to diary notes and copies of observations that I make.

1: How does the setting identify children with additional needs or SEND?

 

Working closely with Parents and other agencies such as Schools and follow the SEND Code of Practice:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25

 

Inclusion:

Wheelchair access: No but willing to make changes should the need arise.

Cater for Cultural requirements: Yes I will work with parents to ensure I meet these requirements.


2: How will I be informed / consulted about the ways in which my child is being supported?

Regular observations for all children and 2 year checks will be carried out and shared with Parents.  Talking/emailing/texting to keep Parents up to date about their child's experiences in the setting.  Permission forms will be read, signed and kept on record for each child for things like playing with outdoor equipment and taking part in trips and walks.


3: How will the setting adapt the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for my child's needs?

I closely follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guidelines which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. I monitor their progress and put next steps in place to ensure they are on track for their age range. This will be available to parents.

I am happy to offer transition assistance by sharing learning journeys with new Schools (only with written permission from parents) and work with children to overcome anxieties.


4: What teaching strategies does the setting use for children with additional needs or learning difficulties?

5: What additional support does the setting provide for children with additional needs or SEND?

6: How will the setting monitor my child’s progress and how will I be involved in this?

I will make observations during play and everyday activities for each child to see where are and then I will record them.  I will put next steps in place to assist them with progressing further.  I will work with Parents to encourage the next steps at home as well as in my setting.


7: How do you ensure children with additional needs or SEND can be included in the same activities as other children, including trips?

I will risk assess all trips and outings and ensure it is safe and well equipped for all the children in my care.  I will never isolate any child.


8: How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?

If the need arises then I can adapt steps with ramps to suit the needs of the children in my care.


9: How will you support my child’s transition to a new setting or school?

Talk to them about the event that is approaching, give examples and demonstrations of what will be expected of them and how they can prepare for the transition.  For example teaching young children how to carry a tray with lots of items on including a cup of water so they learn to balance and limit spilling.


10: How does the setting assess the overall effectiveness of its SEN provision and how can parents / carers take part in this evaluation?

11: Who should I contact if I am considering registering for a place at the setting?

Shelley Taylor

Birch Hill, Bracknell.

12: What arrangements does the setting have for feedback from parents / carers, including compliments and complaints?

I have a compliments/complaints book for parents to fill out and feedback questionnaires available along with a parent pack which details all the information you might find useful about my policies and procedures.
