I also accept FEE for eligible 2/3/4 year olds. This is based on a core offer of 570 hours over no less than 38 weeks. This universal offer is for 15 hours of FEE/childcare per week during term time between the hours of 8am/ 6pm. The sessions cannot be longer than 10 hours. I will accept the extended FEE for eligible children but only if the universal offer is already being taken within my setting.

Special Needs Support
How does the setting identify children with additional needs or SEND?
On admission to my setting all parents/ guardians complete an “ all about me” form.
I use this to assess their baseline assessment within 6 weeks of them starting and us getting to know each other.
Subsequently, I will look for what their next steps should be.
Three times a year together we will complete a termly review.
The completion of the Progress check at aged two is a statutory requirement
All or any of these may show a delay in your child’s development. We would discuss any delay and together come up with a targeted plan of action.
I have completed training in helping identify children who may need extra support and help, all of this will help to make sure your child’s needs are met.
How will I be informed / consulted about the ways in which my child is being supported?
I use a system called BabyDays
All parents have their own personal log in.
It offers daily informal contact. Photographs and daily dairies are also available. Observations are also marked on here by the setting and also can be marked as achieved by parents if they so wish. This keeps us all up to date.
I also complete a termly review in here, parents/ guardians are then able to see exactly what their child has achieved so far.
I am also available daily to have for a short meeting at your request.
If a child is delayed in anyway together we can put together a targeted plan to help.
How will the setting adapt the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for my child's needs?
I am the children’s key person.
I follow the EYFS framework in order to develop and plan for your ‘ unique’ child.
The framework includes
Communication and Language:
Personal, social and emotional development.
knowledge and understanding of the world
expressive arts and design
What teaching strategies does the setting use for children with additional needs or learning difficulties?
Working as a childminder puts me in a strong position to ensure that I can tailor any activities we do. This ensures that every child gets the most they can from the activities and the routine of being in the home environment.The setting
What additional support does the setting provide for children with additional needs or SEND?
My setting follows a SEND and medication policies. If I need additional training in order to provide care for any child.
If your child is making insufficient progress after a targeted plan is out in place I will discuss the need to bring in other services. Your consent will be required for me to make any referral. After your permission has been obtained we maybe able to benefit from more specialised help and your child may receive a personalised plan.
At all stages you would be consulted.
I receive regular training on SEN and update my knowledge when needed.
How will the setting monitor my child's progress and how will I be involved in this?
Daily diaries and photographs
I pride myself on my relationship with all my parents/ carers and am open to anything that bolsters those relationships and cares for their ‘ unique’ child.
How do you ensure children with additional needs or SEND can be included in the same activities as other children, including trips?
We go out almost daily.
If any child’s needs change I will risk assess all outings to make them as inclusive as possible, buying new equipment if I am able to do so.
How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?
Unfortunately my home is not wheelchair accessible.
How will you support my child's transition to a new setting or school?
I will pass on a transition report to the child’s new setting/school.
A visit from school reception teachers is encouraged.
How does the setting assess the overall effectiveness of its SEN provision and how can parents / carers take part in this evaluation?
I review my policies and procedures yearly.
I encourage all parents to fill in an annual questionnaire.
I regularly assess my need for training.
Who should I contact if I am considering registering for a place at the setting?
What arrangements does the setting have for feedback from parents / carers, including compliments and complaints?
