We visit the park, library and toddler groups - safety always comes first whether at home or on a trip. I have my own allotment and take the children there to dig, plant, harvest!

My home is open plan with a conservatory and good size garden. and I have a large and varied selection of indoor / outdoor toys for ages 0-12. I have rest / sleeping facilities upstairs and a study for older children to retreat to for homework. I have a very friendly cat and neither my husband or I smoke.

I offer a flexible service - term time plus holiday, term-time only or holiday only. If your requirements are difficult I can often resolve them (especially if you have a little flexibility too)– it’s worth a conversation. I will supply references if required.

Local Offer Description

 

Ofsted rated: Outstanding in all elements.

I am an experienced childminder - having cared for over 20 children and I strive to provide high quality childcare with my warm, friendly and inclusive service.

I recognize that your child is an individual - and that their development, happiness and safety are my goals.

As required by Ofsted I follow the EYFS and offer a full range of activities – plenty of art, messy play, planting and growing, music, cooking, role play, etc. We visit the park, library and toddler groups - safety always comes first whether at home or on a trip.

My home is open plan with a conservatory and good size garden and I have a large and varied selection of indoor / outdoor toys for ages 0-12. There is one step up into my front door and one step down into my back garden. Other than that my house and garden are accessible with a wheelchair.

I have rest / sleeping facilities upstairs and a study for older children to retreat to for homework. I have a very friendly cat and neither my husband or I smoke.

I offer a flexible service - term time plus holiday, term-time only  or holiday only. If your requirements are difficult I can often resolve them (especially if you have a little flexibility too)– it’s worth a conversation.

I will supply references if required.

I am very happy to consider part-time care.

I am open 08:00-18:30 Monday - Thursday

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

When a child starts with me I spend a few weeks observing carefully where I think they are in their development. This helps me to plan activities to help in their future development. I work closely with parents on this. If I thought that your child had an additional need I would work with you to get the support that we need to help your child.

I complete 2 year development checks with parents - this is then shared with health visitors.

If children also attend other settings I liaise with them (with permission) so that we can achieve a rounded approach to the child's development.


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

I ask for information about your child before they start with me. If a care plan is required for your child I will work with you to develop it.

For babies I use daily diaries which are passed to and from the child's parents. I also text, call and use e-mail to keep parent's informed. Each child has a Learning Journey which records observations, photos, etc of your childs time with me. I ask parents to keep me informed of anything releveant to their child's care and development.

 


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

I am aware of the requirements of the EYFS 2014. If I require more information about your child's development I will ask the relevant organisation - with your permission.

I use your child's interests and my observations about your child to plan activities which may help in their development. Activities are adapted to the ability of each child.

 


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

I treat each child as an individual and adapt activities so that each child is included.

Where possible I will acquire resources relevant to your child's needs.

I will ask for training, additional help and advice if necessary from relevant authorities.

I have recently completed training in speech for under 5's. 


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

If your child needs additional support that I do not have experience in I will ask my Local Authority for help in finding the relevant training/ support.


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

By keeping records of observations of your child I will be able to monitor your child's development. I will share this with you so that we can plan together for your child's future development.

 


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

I risk assess for activities and outings and I adjust activities according to each child's abilities.


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

I have one step into my front door, one step down from my conservatory into the garden. There is a lip from the dining room into the conservatory.

The living room, dining room, kitchen are open plan and flat. The garden is flat.

If a child uses a wheelchair I think it would be best for the parents to actually view my setting to see if it was accessible.  I am very prepared for a parent to have a look as they would know their child's needs.


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

I offer transitional visits and would be happy to visit your home if it would help to settle your child. I would work with you to settle your child. 


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

I provide parent's and children with questionnaires to fill in - I also ask for regular feedback.

I regularly update my Self Evaluation on the Ofsted web-site to help in reviewing my practice.


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

me - Jane Bromfield


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

I have references from all of my current parents.

I keep a compliments / complaints book and display the 'Contact Ofsted' poster.
