I offer a caring and nurturing environment, whilst following the curriculum of the EYFS. Child-led and free play is encouraged, and we have themes and activities throughout the year. We have many outings to farms, Sea Life, the woods, etc. I work closely with an Assistant.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
I provide an all-inclusive service for children with SEN and disabilities and this is my offer of support. I am a childminder, working closely together with an Assistant and meet up with other childminders throughout the week. We offer activities matched up with child's educational needs, resources are available to children via pictures on boxes with toys and picture books to make choice of activity. Your child will be aided to gain independence, dependent on the individual child and their ability. I will ensure your child is safe and secure both physically and emotionally, throughout the transition from home-based care to pre-school and later to full time education. I am trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection (Level 3), Paediatric First Aid, Role of the Senco, Practical Inclusion and I have completed ‘EAL: supporting children 0-5 years learning English as an additional language’ training. I have 6 years of experience working in a local primary school with children with SEND and trained as an ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant). A child with SEND will be prepared the same way the other children will be prepared for school, following the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) framework. An Individual Learning Plan will be put in place and reviewed on a regular basis with parents to further extend your child's learning and development. Any further support needed for your child will be reviewed and implemented. Observations, next steps and outcomes are monitored on a regular basis. Continuous care will be given to support your child to thrive and gain confidence within my setting.
