I am a Childminder in Shotton. I have been rated Good by Ofsted,

I'm registered to deliver nursery education for 3 & 4 year olds. Including the 30 hours free childcare offer. I also provide free play and learn sessions for 2 year olds.

I offer children in my care a home from home environment, where they feel safe, secure and thrive in all areas of their learning. 

Every child's individual needs (learning/dietary/cultural) will be met. 

I have a good selection of resources, toys and books. We enjoy stories, songs and rhymes, music, dancing, dressing up, make believe, games, arts and crafts, sensory and baking.

The children and I go to toddler groups, play sessions, music groups, visits to the park and on special outings. I have a secure garden great for outdoor fun and games.

I also have two gorgeous, well behaved cats.

How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

When a child first starts, I meet with their parents to find out about their child's routine, their likes and dislikes, what they have achieved and how I can best support them. I then monitor the progress the child makes with me.

The observations I do are used with the Flying from the Start programme. I share this information with parents to celebrate the child's achievements and discuss any areas where the child may need some support.

At this point any referrals can be discussed if necessary.

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

Activities are set up with all children in mind. For children who need additional support I will develop a support plan detailing relevant, achievable targets. If outside specialists are involved their feedback is valued and included. At this point any referrals can be discussed if necessary.

What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the early years setting?

What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the early years setting?

My knowledge of SEN guidlines and training is up-to-date. I maintain good relationships with local Health Visitors.

I have experience in accessing support services (for example Speech and Language, Physiotherapy, Occupational Health, CAMHS, and physical, visual and hearing impairment services).

What training have the staff supporting children with SEND had, or are having?

I regularly attend all relevant council training to help me support all the children in my care.

How accessible is the early years setting environment? (indoors/outdoors)

How accessible is the early years setting environment? (indoors/outdoors)

I have arranged the furniture in my home so that children have lots of space to play and move around. The garden is flat with grassed, paved and gravelled areas. Lots of sensory experiences and activities are available for all children.

 

 

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

When it comes to transitions, I work with parents and their child's next setting. I encourage visits by the child's teacher and pass on as much relevant information as I can.

I support parents with tips about preparing their child for the move and make myself available to visit the next setting if needed.
