Special Needs Support
How does the setting identify children with additional needs or SEND?
I meet with parents and children prior to them starting and also have settling sessions. I ask parents to fill in some details before they start about their child's likes and dislikes, recent achievements, any concerns etc. I make regular observations. I use a daily diary, have recently started to use Kinderly for observations etc and to share information and verbal informal conversations with parents.
How will I be informed / consulted about the ways in which my child is being supported?
Mostly verbally and/or in the daily diary or on Kinderly.
How will the setting adapt the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for my child's needs?
Each child is observed and encouraged to choose their own activities out of a range of suitable ones in accordance to their needs. Adult led activities will also be offered to each individual child to help support and develop their individual needs. All activities support the Early Years curriculum and the relevant areas of learning.
What teaching strategies does the setting use for children with additional needs or learning difficulties?
There is quite a lot of structure and routine in place within our day, but within this a lot of freedom. For example whilst we may always go to a certain play group on a certain day, whilst there children are encouraged to play and discover new activities, crafts, songs etc. Around the home we have visual posters etc and I also like to take my time to explain lots of things to children, eg what we will do next, how we will do it. I prefer a strong parent/childminder relationship so that we can work together to support children with additional needs or learning difficulties and mimic in both places, any strategies that may be working at the home or in the childcare setting
What additional support does the setting provide for children with additional needs or SEND?
I aim to provide a fun, loving and supportive environment to encourage children to always see my home as an extension of their own and therefore encourage their want to attend.
Full contact and health details are taken when a child starts and this includes permission forms for medication so that it is talked through and noted what medicines may need to be given, when and how. We also talk through a child's needs and support they are likely to need and what actions or resources may be needed to support this.
How will the setting monitor my child's progress and how will I be involved in this?
Using the relevant training that I gained through PACEY and through further training that is obtained regularly, I will use this knowledge to monitor a child's progress. I will seek advice from parents/carers and look to have open and honest conversations that will enable to support the child's needs.
How do you ensure children with additional needs or SEND can be included in the same activities as other children, including trips?
All activities and outings are risk assessed and all children thought about. I pride myself on being inclusive and as such an activity or outing will only take place, if all those present can be involved and included.
How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?
Childcare is carried out on the ground floor. The house and rooms within can be accessed by wheelchair and a ramp so can entre in to the house would be provided. We do not have a downstairs toilet at this stage.
How will you support my child's transition to a new setting or school?
All progress and achievements of a child will be shared (with parents permission), with any new settings, to ensure the child starts the new setting with the best and most accurate information about them handed over. Having observed a child from the day they started in my setting, by the time they move on to a new setting or school, I will have a wonderful idea of their character and abilities and needs and can pass this on accordingly. Children are constantly encouraged with their next steps and so are prepared for their next stages in life.
How does the setting assess the overall effectiveness of its SEN provision and how can parents / carers take part in this evaluation?
I ask parents for feedback and encourage honesty. If a parent feels an improvement or amendment can be made, I would like to know so that I can better the service I am providing and enable a child to feel even more comfortable within my setting. Parents can provide feedback verbally or in writing.
Who should I contact if I am considering registering for a place at the setting?
Myself Carly Moore
What arrangements does the setting have for feedback from parents / carers, including compliments and complaints?
I have a compliments and complaints book that any parent is free to view or comment in at any time.
Any complaints are taken seriously and where necessary used to make amendments within the setting.
Feedback questionnaires are given to children & parents twice a year in order to gain feedback and suggestions on what could be improved or delivered within the setting or what is going down well and people want to stay.
