Description

I work closely with all parents to assess the needs of all children both before they start at this setting and for the duration of their attendance here. We work together and liaise with other agencies as appropriate to support each child and enable them to reach their full potential. I have a wide range of experience caring for children with differing needs, please contact me to discuss your child's unique needs and how these can be accommodated.

 

I have experience of caring for children with a wide range of needs.  Please contact me to discuss your child's unique requirements and whether this setting is able to provide for their needs.

 

I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and aim to provide an environment and experiences that enable all children to achieve their full potential in a setting where all children are supported and challenged as they progress.

 

I have undertaken studying as appropriate for each child in my care. I also work closely with all others involved in the care of a child. A step up to both front door and back door restricts access.

 

All children have a daily diary and communication book which is taken between settings. An open door policy is in place and parents can contact me face to face, by phone. or email. I also have a fundamental working knowledge of Makaton.

 

I have completed BA (Honours) in Childcare and Development and continue to study and research in order to improve my practice. I have a wealth of previous experience in caring for children with special needs. I undertake training as appropriate for each child in my care.

Early Years Local Offer Response

1. What recent SEND specific training has been completed by practitioners in the setting?

I undertake training and regularly update my knowledge relevant to each child in my care

2. How are parents involved at the setting and how can I be involved?

Parents are key information providers in the care of all children especially those with SEND. Before a child starts settling in sessions I spend as much time as possible with parents to gather information about their child and gain an understanding of their specific requirements. If necessary I will update my knowledge before a child begins settling in. 

I keep a daily diary and ask parents to contribute to this as well. This gives an in-depth picture of a child's development and details strategies and routines and their success. 

Due to Covid restrictions the daily diaries are currently kept at the setting, each day's entry is sent on WhatsApp to parents and any comments or information they make is added to the diary. 

 

3. How will practitioners work with me to share information about my child's progress? What is additional for children with SEND?

I work closely with all practitioner's involved in any child's care and this is especially crucial in the care of a child with SEND. 

I will attend meetings when possible and liaise with practitioners by phone, email or letter. regular progress reports can be prepared for use by parents at meetings. I will follow recommendations made by other professionals, adapting them to the setting where ever possible.  

4. What specialist services and expertise are available at, or accessed by the setting?

Specialist practitioners are welcome to visit the child in the setting. 

5. How accessible is the setting's environment (indoors and outdoors)?

There is a step into the house at the front door. 

Indoors is on one level.

There is a large step out into the garden, a ramp can be placed here if needed.

6. What are the transition arrangements for supporting children and families?

Parents are encouraged to direct their child's transition and the length of transitional sessions is based on the parent's knowledge and understanding of their child. 

Where ever possible I will make adaptations as suggested by parents in order to enable a child to settle in well.

 

7. What future plans does your setting have for developing its SEND?

I will continue to attend training that is relevant to the children in my care. 

Ultimately I would like to achieve level access to the garden.
