Local Offer


We are an inclusive practice and with endeavour to cater to any child's needs, we are restricted by steps and access for wheelchair uses, due to being on a domestic premises.

Special Needs Support

The childrens progress are monitored within the setting using progress trackers and regular reviews, if a child a falling below expected levels we will discuss the best cause of action to take and sign post to relevant help and assistance.

We have experience with speach and language difficulties and offer basic signing  and baby signing.

We complete regular progress reviews where you can add any concerns that may arise.

We also use a daily family app, and send daily WhatsApp communication including photos for you to pass on any messages.

Each child is planned for individually, we include the childs interests to help encourage and promote learning.

We offer support for additional needs and work with multi agencies and can signpost to other useful agencies via greenbacks and their mash team.

We are an inclusive practise and  will adapt all activities and outings to meet all ages and stages of development. This includes cultural preferences.

You will be kept updated on your childs day with regular whatsapp posts to help you feel included in your childs learning.

We offer individual planning and have experience with targeted planning and working in partnership with other specialist providers.  We invite specialist teachers into the setting who need monitoring within the learning environment. We also work along side  the specialist teachers to delver the additional support that may be required.

Regular reviews, verbal discussions and parent questionnaires.

All activities/outings are adaptable to all ages stages and ability.

Unfortunately access is limited for wheelchairs as door width would not allow as we are a residential setting. 

We use transition reports and promote school readiness during the final terms before school. Quite often we collect from the schools the children will be attending so that children are used to the external school environment.

We teach independent skills, letter recognition,  phonic, handwriting skills. We have a uniform and homework system in place to help with the transition. 

We have good relationships with our parents and encourage open discussion of any concerns. We send our parents views forms twice a year for feed back, to regularly assess the provision. 

You should contact Joanne zannetti owner childminder. We will discuss your requirements and arrange a visit. A link will be sent to my closed work Facebook group to enable you to see what activities are on offer.

We have regular parents views forms and a comments book available. We also have the famly app and private WhatsApp groups to pass messages if needed.

Reviews can be found on from past and present parents.
