Description

Early Years Local Offer 

I am an Ofsted registered childminder committed to providing quality flexible childcare for children and young people with additional needs.  I work with parents to ensure the best outcomes for each individual child.

I do attend regular training to cover all aspects of Childcare in the early years.

By working in close partnership with parents, information about their child’s learning, development and progress is shared on a regular basis.  Information about a child’s likes and dislikes is shared and activities are extended to support the child’s enjoyment and learning whilst at the setting.  Routines are  discussed with parents to ensure consistency throughout the day for their child.  

All children attending the setting are monitored and observed to support their learning and development.  Any concerns regarding a child’s development are shared with the parents and we will work on a joint action plan in support of their child.  We will discuss if further support is required or if parents would like other services involved.

As a registered childminder I have a Key Contact at Buckinghamshire County Council with the Early Years Team, and with parental permission I may contact them for further advice.

A range of online resources (Communication Carousel, IDP, OT and SALT websites…) are available for us to access.

I welcome other professionals into the setting who may have involvement with a child and I am keen to access further training to support a child’s development e.g. speech and language (Speech Therapist).

I am happy to attend Multi-Professionals Meetings if required

My setting is fully accessible for all children both inside and out.   I have a small step leading to the front door and side entrance.  I am happy to discuss a child’s individual needs and will be accommodating where possible e.g. adaptations to meet sensory needs or to accommodate dietary requirements.

I work in close partnership with other childminders, schools, pre-schools and the local day nursery to ensure effective transitions for all children.  I encourage families to have a settling in period with their child as this helps me to get to know their child. We will jointly focus on a child’s starting points which will feed into their  setting ‘learning journey’.  When a child moves settings I will encourage the new provider to visit the child at my setting and in their home environment and ensure they have the opportunity to visit and settle in their new environment.  

To keep up to date with SEND information and training through the Local Authority and my Key Contact.  I regularly review the environment, toys, resources, activities and experiences I offer to my families to ensure each individual child’s needs are met.
