My name is Hayley. I live at home with my partner James who is also my registered assistant. We are both paediatric first aid trained and have relevant qualifications and safeguarding certificates. We have 2 children, a son aged 13 and a daughter aged 7.


We Live in a 3 bedroom semi-detached house which has a large back garden, with a wide variety of resources. We have an open plan front room/dining room which is dedicated to childminding. We have a conservatory that is solely used for childminding. Our home offers a welcoming, warm and friendly environment giving a home from home feel. Families are encouraged to become part of our family.


We believe children learn best through first hands experiences and are encouraged with a stimulating environment and a variety of opportunities provided, ensuring all ages, abilities and stages of development are met.

Description

I can cater for children with additional needs, and have good personal and professional knowledge and understanding in this area.

Special Needs Support

When you register with our setting we will ask you to complete an 'All about me' form. This will enable us to get to know your child and identify their strengths and any needs of support for further development. We will also discuss and work with you to gather all relevant information to help support your child's next steps. If your child has already been identified as having SEND we have a separate form to complete that allows more in depth information to be gathered. We also provide a starting point form which is designed to try and help us to identify your child's strengths and areas of development. Continual monitoring and observations will be carried out on your child along with the statutory 2 year old progress check. Progress will be tracked and regularly reviewed. If your child is showing signs of falling below expected levels we will discuss with you the best course of action. The monitoring is used to help identify any delays in development and required support for next steps. Any identified needs would be discussed with you, written and shared in the form of action target plan.

As SENCo in our setting I ensures families have the best support and resources to help with the development of your child. I have over 18 years experience with SEND children and have worked with a variety of children with complex needs. We also have a daughter with SEND and have lots of knowledge and experience. Training is always kept up to date to help identify children who may need additional support.

In our setting we work on a key person approach. This allows the key person to be involved right form the start so that strong and positive relationships are built with you and your child. As we are a home from home setting your child and yourselves will build relationships with all of us. There are a variety of ways we involve parents such as daily contact books, informal discussions at pick up or drop off, working together to form targets and achievements, detailed learning journals which set out photos and observations, 3x termly reviews of which you are able to add comments to

We are always approachable in person, via phone or email.

We will observe, assess and plan for your child in accordance with the EYFS requirements, working along side any professionals to meet you and your family's needs.

Every child in the setting is unique. Each child is planned for individually where their needs and interests and met. Every child grows and learns in different ways and we will work closely with one another to develop how best to support your child. All areas of development will be adapted to suit all individual needs.

The environment we provide is inclusive to all children. Planning takes place regularly to tailor activities to ensure that every child's interests and needs are meet. When planning outings consideration and adaptation are made to ensure all children can access the same activities in a variety of ways. We use a variety of resources such as communicate in print, Visual aids, along with British Sign Language and Signed Supported English (SSE). Our toys are in clearly labelled boxes with pictures and words, which supports children's abilities to choose their own activities. If your child has other professionals involved and theory plans to follow we ensure we continue this in the setting through our play. From attending training we implement any strategies and approaches we feel necessary, we will do this after discussing it with you. We have purchased some specialist equipment that we use with all children which allows your child not to feel isolated or different.

We have a clear equal opportunities and inclusive policy which sets out the approach we use to support children in our setting. If your child is making insufficient progress through targeted plans then we would discuss with you the need to refer to other services and professionals. Your consent is required in order for a referral to be made to the Specialist Teaching and Learning Services thought the Local Inclusion Forum Team (LIFT). A specialist Teacher will then come in and give guidance and advice in supporting your child. If your child receives support from outside agencies the targeted plan would turn into a personalised plan. We have lots of experiences working with other specialist services and implementing additional advice and guidance. As Childminders we regularly update CPD and attend training courses in order to extend our knowledge of SEND.

As a setting we pride ourselves on being approachable and have strong relationships with all our parents. We support parents by sharing resources and any literature obtained from training sessions and advice any local workshops that may be appropriate for them and their children. We encourage our parents to do the same in sharing any information with us to provide a holistic approach. We regularly monitor your child's progress and track their development. We write 3 reviews within the year and track their progress termly. We focus on their play, interactions as well as their mental and emotional well-being. Their learning journals can be seen at anytime and parents are involved and kept up to date with any targets set. We complete a 2 year check just after your child's 2nd birthday and ideally before your health visitors appointment. If at this stage your child is delayed in any of the areas of development you can share our check with the health visitor who will carry out their own assessment.

When organising outing and trips, consideration for all children's ages, stages and abilities are tailored for. We provide an inclusive setting and are adaptable and diverse in our approaches. As with any child we will have conversations with parents about their child to assess what they enjoy doing and what their limits are.

Unfortunately our home is limited for wheelchair user due to not having a wide enough door to access through.

In the past I have had home visits from the new school teachers/assistants where we have discussed the child and been able to look through their learning journals and discuss how best to met their needs in the new environment. Also shown techniques and their unique care plans. I also write a detailed transition report, which is a document that shares with the school how your child is progressing in each learning area, any areas of concerns and additional support that has been put in place. With your consent this is shared with the school to help support them on their arrival. All children in the setting regardless of their abilities are encouraged to be 'school ready'. This is promoted in the last few terms before school. We also do school picks ups and discuss the different schools people may be going to, and visit them on occasions so the children are aware of the external school environment of their selected schools.

Through continual monitoring and assessment we are able to access the overall effectiveness of our SEN provision. We self evaluate on ourselves and our setting. This will include feedback from parents and other agencies. We encourage parents to address any concerns they have with the provision or their child at regular intervals. we attend regular training and evaluate what we have attended and put into practice the knowledge gained. We update policies and procedures regularly and send questionnaires to parents and children where applicable.

Our business name is Hayley's Comets. Please contact Hayley Pullman via the KCFIS website or through childcare.co.uk. Our website www.hayleyscomets.co.uk will also give you lots of information about our provision. We can arrange a suitable time to meet and discuss yours and your child's requirements to ensure your child has the right support in place prior to them attending, this may include meeting with other agencies or key workers. You will be given all our policies and procedures and additional forms to complete. You will be given the opportunity to share with us your child's starting point and outline the things they like and any areas of concern you have. You will be offered settling in sessions and we can discuss this to tailor your child's needs. I will also apply for Disability Access Fund (DAF) and work out how the funding can be spent in order to maximise your child's development and meet their needs.

We regularly review children's progress and parents are given the opportunity to comment. We give questionnaires out twice a year to reflect on our setting and parents are always encouraged to give any feedback on how we can improve, we also send an 'up date from home' form where parents fill out what their child is now in to etc. We send out newsletters every term and state on here how feedback from parents is important. Reviews of the setting can be found at childcare.co.uk, as well as a folder kept at the setting. You are made aware of the complaints procedure during the initial meeting along with all my policies and procedures. We also have a poster displayed in the setting which explains the procedure to follow if you are wanting to make a complaint that you feel you can not talk to us about directly.
