Local Offer Description

My setting is my own home, children have access to a lounge, kitchen, downstairs toilet with hand washing facilities and playroom upstairs, which is mainly used for sleeping children. My mission is have a home from home setting which is an extention of any childs home.

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

I regularly do observations on litttle ones, with written reports and photos for parents. Daily diaries.  I ask parents to fill in a development form when their child first comes. 2 year check is also done. All folders are regularly  sent home for parents to add their input and regular chats are had on pick up.

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

See above answer. I chat to parents on drop off and pick up and parents chat about what thier child gets up to at home. I think I have a good relationship with all my parents. I do learning journals as well as dailiy diaries, photos are also sent to parents. I adapt my daily planning to suit each childs needs.

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

I adapt my daily planning to suit each child's needs, giving little tasks along the way, which help them reach the next stage in thier development.

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

Currently, I don't have much experience working with children with learning difficulties. However, each child is treated as an individual and activities would be adapted to meet their needs. I would require resources and additional support and advice which I could access through Bracknell Forest's Development and Inclusion Officer.

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

I have attended a training course for SEND and have a policy in place and I have some resources to help.See question

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

I do regular obs, daily diaries, learning journals and chat to parents all the times about thier child and how they have been through the day.

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

Everything would be adapted to meet their needs and risk assesments would be done when required.

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

I do not have accessiblity for a wheel chair.

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

Journals, diaries and the childs folders are passed on to parents. Children come for visits and have sttling in periods.

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

I ask parents to fill a progress form for me to see whether they are happy and to see if anything needs improving. If I pick up a nursery child we chat to the nursery staff and everything is monitered and reviewed. 

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

The childminder.

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

I have a complaints book that sits near my front door but mostly if a parent has an issue its normally resolved verbally. I keep all references and thank you letters for future clients to review with feed back forms too. I have displayed the parents poster clearly.
