Lois Feldman - network childminder

I currently work with my partner and we look after children of all ages. I have two teenage daughters and they like to help out when they are not at school. We have three small dogs and five chickens. We are lucky and have a large garden which has artificial grass which means outdoor play can be all year round. During term time we try to go to playgroups or soft play centres and during the holidays we take trips to the forest, beach and up to London. We can cater for most cultural needs.

Overview

At this setting we feel every child is unique and should be given the same opportunity to reach their full potential.

We are fully aware of the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND Code of Practice 2014.

All of the children are included in the daily activities which also include activities that may not be at the settings address.

At this setting we have a large garden which is split into three sections.

  • Artificial grass and climbing and ride on toys
  • Matted area with a play house, facilities for a mud kitchen, water wall etc.
  • Chickens, which the children are allowed to access, accompanied, to clean and collect eggs etc.

We have a large lounge that the children play in and there is a playroom with bunk cots so that each child has their own bed.

Identifying children's needs

If we think that a child is struggling or not progressing as they should, then we would speak to the parents / carers initially. If we feel that we might require outside help, then with the parents /carers consent we will ask for advice from our Childminding Development Officer and or SEN Advisor.

Dedicated contacts

Firstly I would like the parents to approach me.

  • Planning and review meetings
  • Advice on how to support learning at home
  • Regular contact between parents/carers and the setting
Range of support available
  • EYFS Curriculum  planning differentiation

Measuring children's progress

We complete a Two Year Progress Check for all children, where necessary with the support of the SEN Co-ordinator, Advisor and Childminding Development Officer and Child Development Officer we would arrange the necessary progress strategy.

Support and training for school staff

I have attended a SEN course giving me basic strategies.

I have regular contact with other childminders in the area.

Accessibility of the school

The bathroom is on the ground floor and has steps for children to access the toilet and the washing facilities

The garden is accessible from the lounge and during the summer months is open all of the time.

Inclusion

We always ensure that Risk Assessments are completed for trips, myself or partner attend the locations in advance to plan the route safely.

Transition arrangements

We work closely with the new setting at times of transition.
