Local Offer

Special Needs Support

 I offer childcare to all children and i can adapt any activities for children who may have SEND.

 

When your child is with me, we have contact books on your child's daily route up-to the age of 3. Photos and information can be shared via whattsapp daily. Information regarding how your child feels and how they are/have been when not in my care is talked about on handover either way. You are welcome to contact me at any point during the day to check in on your child.

Each child is unique. They are them and I encourage each child to develop and grow to their own ability and understanding of the work around them. If a child has any additional needs, I will have discussions with you on how best to support and encourage their personal wellbeing.

Depending on each child's ability or disability, this will be discussed about and individual learning strategies can be put into place and monitored regularly to ensure they are correct for each individual child's needs .

any support that any child requires is discussed and offered in accordance with each child's needs and ways of retaining information and sensory exploration.

 

 

You will have regular information feed backs about your child and how they are developing. I welcome as much information and input from each child's parent/carer as possible to help ensure they are on the right path that is unique to them. 

 

Monitoring each child and observing their play and interaction, as well as their mental and emotional wellbeing. 

 

 by risk assessing and being an inclusive practise will ensure that no child will miss out on any activity or day out.

I have two steps up-to my front door. This may not be suitable for wheelchair users but a ramp can be supplied as and when needed. access via my garage to the playroom is accessible for wheelchair users.

a process of extended introduction, play and conversations to each child's level is provided to help ease any anxiety when entering any new setting.

productive feedback is most welcome. Any constructive comments will be listened too and acted upon.
