Overview

At my setting it is important that everyone is treated fairly. All children are given the best opportunity to achieve and reach their full potential. I offer all children a full range of activities which support their development in a stimulating and safe environment.

I ensure that support is given to children with special educational needs so that they can be included in all the activities.

My setting is located in the Wanstead area close to the tube station. I have a separate playroom and good size garden. I can accommodate up to 6 children at any one time. The children who attend my setting come from arrange of different background. I also have a quiet room where children can sleep and relax. My setting is bright, clean and welcoming and a home from home environment.

The setting is located in a 2 story house with the toilet on the first floor. There is a small step to the porch and rear garden.

Identifying children's needs

I work very close with parents and by sharing information I am able to provide good quality care. Starting points are obtained and individual settling in program arranged to ease the transition progress.

Ongoing observations are curried out which identifies where the child is developmentally so I can plan how to support them to achieve their next step.

These observations are shared with parents and any difficulties with their learning is discussed as its important that early identification of any difficulties is met.

With written consent from parents and cares outside agencies can be involved when children do not progress at the expected rate.
