Neve, Michelle

I offer before and after school childcare, as well as full/part time. I am early years registered. My Ofsted rating was "good" on last inspection. I have a dedicated playroom and quiet room for nap time. I use local facilities such as play groups, libraries and parks.

I provide a loving, caring environment for children to thrive in, and can provide excellent references.

Local Offer Description

I run my business from home which is warm and welcoming with a loving and caring atmosphere. I have a dedicated playroom for the children's enjoyment and offer a wide range of activities.

My main goal is that all children leave my care happy and with a feeling of accomplishment and inclusion. Whilst in my care children are taught manners, their rights to be happy, to share and respect other people's feelings and wishes so in turns their's will also be met.

With a happy, friendly and caring environment all children thrive and have a higher willingness to learn.

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

Before children join my setting I speak with parents to understand where their child/children are developmentally if they may have concerns or worries about their child's development.

I undergo daily observations and track children's development using Every Child Matters statements. I converse with parents daily and give them their child's progress report termly. I carry out 2 year checks to help identify any area's where there may be an issue.

I if a concern is identified I will speak with the child's parents and any other setting the child is involved with (with parental permission) and possibly advise speaking with the child's health visitor or doctor to access any help that the child may need.


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

I communicate daily with parents, verbally, through the child's daily diary and via texts or emails. I also ask that parents keep me informed in their child's life at home, what their current interests are, anything that may be bothering them etc.

As stated above I also share the child's Learning and Development journey with parents regularly. 


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

Every child is an individual with their own interests, wants, needs and desires. I will use the information gained about each child in my care to develop planned activities which will challenge and meet the needs (developmentally, emotionally and socially) of all the children involved. Sometimes this is difficult to achieve for example if one child likes animals and the other likes baby dolls and pushchairs it can be difficult to integrate the 2 interests so sharing and taking turns often comes into play. Sometimes however 2 activities of different interests can be combined for example train set and farm set, or play dough and farm set, etc.

Children will be encouraged to join in all activities and praised when they do. I usually find that the child comes away with new interests because the interlinked activity was so much fun! 


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

I don't have any training or experience working with children with additional needs or learning difficulties. If a child in my setting was identified as having such I would work with local agencies working with the child and the child's parents to come up with a plan best suited to the child's needs. If that means finding alternative childcare then so be it. 

I am fully prepared to do what is best for each individual child in my care. 

 


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

I don't have any training or experience working with SEND.


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

Your childs progress is monitored using a daily diary, learning and development journey and Every Child Matters statements. You will get the opportunity to contribute to the childs dairy on a daily basis if you so wish. The learning journey and statements will be available for you to look at and comment on termly.


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

If I have a child with SEND or additional needs in my setting, trips would only take place if the safety of all children in my care can be guaranteed. To do this I will need to complete risk assessments. This would usually mean having less children in my care at the time of the trip to enable inclusion but also of the needs of the child with SEND.


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

I have steps leading up to the entrance of my house and another door coming straight of the main front door to the right which is impossible for a wheelchair to get through. A single pushchair can only just get through! 


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

I will talk to the child about starting school or the new setting and make it as positive as possible. I will also complete a transition form for the new setting/school to see where the child is developmentally, emotionally and any needs they may have.


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

I speak to parents and carers of the children in my care and also hand out questionnaires termly to find out from the parents what I am doing well and what I can improve on. 


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

You should contact  Michelle Neve on 01276 33207 or email shell.neve@gmail.com


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

I have a compliments and complaints book situated in the entrance to the building. I also have questionnaires for parents to fill out. I have a complaints procedure in my policies and also display the Ofsted poster for parents.
