Overview

At Splash Of Kids, I believe in all children being given the best possible opportunities to receive their full potential.  At my setting all children are able to access a full range of activities to support their learning and development in a play based environment.

I’m located in the Clayhall area, very close to Parkhill School and Clayhall Park.  I have a large play area and good sized garden which the children access freely.  I can accommodate up to 5 children.  Children in my setting come from a range of backgrounds, and all are welcome. 

I have experience of supporting a child with Autism, and have worked closely with other professionals to ensure that his development is met as a team support.

Identifying children's needs

Through observation and assessment of individual children’s progress, I’m able to identify and monitor any areas of development that requires support and therefore, enable early identification and intervention.  All assessments are play based and I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum milestones.

Dedicated contacts

Outside agencies may be involved when a child does not progress at the expected rate despite additional support.  Parents and carers are asked for their consent.  Progress may also be discussed with the LA Childminding Development Officer and the SEN Advisor/Coordinator.

Involving children and their families
  • Planning and review meetings
  • Parenting advice
  • Advice on how to support learnign at home
  • Regular contact between parents/carers and the setting
Range of support available
  • EYFS Curriculum planning differentiation
  • Support for health needs
  • Support for behaviour
  • Support for communication needs
  • Partnership working with other professionals
Measuring children's progress

A progress report is provided to parents at the end of every term, with details of the child’s progress across all areas of learning.  Simultaneously a 2 year old progress check is compiled which also covers the child’s progress in the prime areas of learning.

Support and training for school staff

I am a qualified Childminder and also a member of the Redbridge Network which is quality assurance scheme.  This means that I work closely with the Network Co-ordinator who carries out regular visits to the setting.  I have attended relevant training to support the children in my care.

I have also completed a level 2 course in Developing Counselling Skills.

Accessibility of the school

All resources are located in the play area in labelled boxes at child level.  I have a toilet located on the ground floor.  The garden is easily accessible from the main playroom.  There are steps to the front of the house, however the rear of the house is suitable for wheelchair access.

Inclusion

I carry our regular risk assessments which includes trip and outings, to ensure that Health & Safety is maintained at all times.

There is a wide range of appropriate equipment in place to support children’s learning and development.  Resources are reviewed regularly as children develop and grow.   I ensure that all activities are differentiated to meet children’s level of development.

Transition arrangements

I regularly visit Parkhill School, which enables the children to become familiar with the provision which helps them in their transition.

Support and training for parents and carers
  • Parent consultation
  • SENCo
  • Links with Childrens Centres
