Overview

Tamba Day Nursery is inclusive and we provide opportunities, experiences and resources that reflect the children we have in the setting. These include dual language books, different ethnic dolls, small world people, role-play equipment such as cultural clothing and food packaging.

The nurseries policies and procedures have been specially tailored to ensure we meet the needs of all families, including those with disabled members, different cultures and backgrounds.

All children are seen as individuals and as a result planning is tailored to each child’s development stage. It is the role of the key person to provide activities to support children in their next stage of development. This includes children who may need some further support, in these cases an Individual Outcome Plan (IOP) will be composed with support of professionals and parents, which will include some extra information tailored to meet there next step, such as specific Strategies. 

Parents play a significant part of our team from registration. Parents are seen as partners and we involve them in all aspects of Tamba. Information sharing is very important and this is done through displays, emails, newsletters and meetings. Parents are invited in at any time and are involved in their children’s learning. Parent Association meetings are held each term where parents can get together and attend a meeting, which is, chaired by Management. It is an opportunity to share information such as upcoming dates, changes and so on. We have set sessions for parents to attend the setting for example Wednesday is big cook little cook where parents can come along and cook with their children.

Tamba, Chadwell Heath is situation in a purpose built building offering childcare facilities for children aged from 3 months to 8 years and has a capacity for 93 children across all ages.  All rooms are spacious, light, airy and decorated minimalistic to create a calming atmosphere. Although rooms are decorated with children’s creations & displays. The rooms have been created to enhance children’s independence and all resources are at children’s access and sinks, toilets etc are designed to allow children to be independent.

Although based on the second floor, the layout of the setting is designed for children with disabilities, including lift access, wide entrances and disabled toilets for both children and adults.     

Identifying children's needs

At Tamba Day Nursery, we have a through observation; assessment and planning systems and staff are well trained in order to support all children. Specifically Tamba Day Nursery has a trained SENCO, who is expereineced in working with children of all abilities and has attended detailed training for Special Educational Needs. In cases whereby a child is observed and staff suspect they may need some extra support an IOP will be composed to provide this support. Parents and Carers are always the first person to communicate with regarding development. Once an IOP is completed if necessary the Manager will suggest contacting the appropriate person. For example, if a child displays signs of Communication Delay, with parental consent a referral would be made to a Speech & Language therapist. In some cases children may require a support practitioner offering the child a one to one ratio. Tamba is dedicated to working with a muti-agency team and can employ staff for this particular role if needed.

Dedicated contacts

When your child starts at Tamba they will be allocated a Key Person. This is a member of staff in their room that will form a special bond with them and support them during their time at nursery. This member of staff will be responsible for monitoring the development of your child. If parents do have concerns they can contact the key person initially. The key person would share these concerns with our SENCO, special educational Needs Coordinator. However parents can disclose any concerns with the Nursery Manager or any person whom they feel comfortable talking with.

The key person will record progress up until the review date. Parents, professionals and the key person will hold a meeting at the review to discuss development and progression that has taken place. Observations will be shared and parents can share their experiences with the staff. As well as this, feedback both verbally and written is provided daily to parents to discuss each child’s unique day at nursery.

Inclusion

At Tamba our environment, activities and experiences are reviewed regularly to ensure that the needs of all our children are met. Activities will be tailored to ensure children will all abilities are exposed to activities, which can fulfil their full potential. Tamba is dedicated to ensure if our setting or staff to not have the facilities to meet a child’s needs we will ensure that we gain advice and support to ensure that any barriers are removed to ensure both the child and family feel happy and secure. It is always Tamba’s priority to make families feel valued and respected.

Transition arrangements

Transition is seen as highly significant in ensuring children feel safe, secure and happy to develop and thrive. Parents are expected to co-operate with Tamba to ensure that their children are given an effective amount of time to settle, we appreciate that every child is different and settling in periods can differ.

When it is time for tranisition to take place it is crucial that the pace is tailored to each child.

Planning reflects transition when the time comes and staff plan activities to encourage children to understand that it is time to move onto the next room or possibly school.

This includes trips to their new room or school, creating a photo album and role-play.
