Local Offer

Special Needs Support

When a child is about to start at the setting the parents are given a pack to compete which is a starting points and shows the childs particular strengths or weaknesses.

At two years old a child would have a progress check which would be given to parents to share with the health visitor when they attend their progress check.

Any concerns would be discussed with the parents.

Each day i send out whattsapp messages giving parents an overview of their childs day. I would ask parents to come and have a chat with me when they collected their child if i had any concerns that needed addressing.

Through communication and language and providing a language rich environment giving evety child the opportunity to talk and listened to. Also by offering an accessible environment for parents and children to feel safe in and building links and working in partnership with any therapists or agencies

Working as a childminder puts me in a good position as i am the key person that the child will have contact with which enables me to tailor all the activities i provide around different children and the tasks that they enjoy.

I regularly attend training programmes or courses on childcare.co.uk to keep up to date and would involve my self in any SEND training to benefit the child

I have a very good relationship with all my parents who are welcome to come in and chat when they collect their children at the end of the day. Any concerns are always addressed 

We take trips out on a daily basis and everyone s included. Sometimes i have to revise or risk assess the trips we are making to ensure everyone is safe 

For wheelchair access i would have to arrange for a ramp as we have a small step leading into the house

The children prepare for school by visits to the school going to the school fayres and Christmas fayres to familiarise themselves with it. We talk about school and collect other children from there 

By talking to parents about their needs and reviewing things

I have a compliments and complaints form that is accessible to parents
