Local Offer - Support available for children and young people with additional needs
I live in a 3 bed semi in the Whitley Wood area of Reading.
I cater of all children
Local Offer last reviewed 02/08/2016
I will observe children when they first arrive and take observations of their milestones
I will make observations and assessments of children’s learning on a daily basis, and share any concerns with you and any other professional health provider.
My setting has a play environment and we often adapt activities of what is available on the day according to the child's interests and level of need on a per child rota basis. I adapt the EYFS to offer targeted support for individual development and interventions. These are planned and built into the child's learning environment in planning activity sheets and on the spot adjustments. My setting can give you information about any other programmes we use such as the playing and learning to socialise (PALS) I can also signpost you to other early years support such as children's centre's which we can use to ensure that we are working with all areas and facilities available to widen the EYFS curriculum to offer a varied range of development in all activities to cater for all levels of learners and all types of interactions in those activities.
The children learn through a curriculum based around play then in our next steps we plan our weeks according to the children's interests.
Observations and plans are logged to show the journey of the children's learning. Because children learn at different rates we look at their stage of development rather than their age.
- Active, senses-based exploration of the environment.
- Self-directed, hands-on learning activities balanced with teacher-directed activities.
- A balance between individual and group activities.
- Regular and supportive interaction with myself
- A balance between active movement and quiet activities.
- Ongoing observation and assessment, which informs the program.
I include children by what is known about their development and learning; what is known about the strengths, interests, and needs of each individual child in the group; and knowledge of the social and cultural context in which children live. This allows for a variety within each child.
I can adapt my home but at the moment there is no wheelchair access.
- In my setting I will liaise with you and also involve your child in completing the ‘Things I’d Like You to Know About Me’ sheet. This will be given to the receiving school before your child starts to help them understand your child’s needs and preferences.
- I also help each child by preparing a photograph book about your child’s new school.
In my setting I ask parents for feedback and suggestions to access the effectiveness of all aspects of my services,at every opportunity and offer a way to ask for anything and everything you or your child needs
I do training on a regular basis to improve and check the services I offer.
