speaking to parents about their child I have experience with observing children
I can offer face to face meetings to discuss your child and how we can help them develop together
Activities will be adapted to your childs needs so that they can join with all the children
I treat all children as an individual so their needs are assessed and teaching strategies adapted.
contact with West Berkshire Council and the childrens hub in Thatcham
for children under 5 they each have a learning journey, where photos of our activies are placed,they are sent home termly. i discuss next steps and work in partnership with parents. All children are unique so these are based around what your child can already do and what they need to do next
I risk assess trips and activities so all children can be safe in my care.
Not very accessible as I have a step up and in to my house and no downstairs toilet.
My full support will be offered to both child and carer whilst the child transitions to a new setting or school
I Send out 6 monthly questionnaires to parents about my setting. I observe things that need changing with lots of face to face discussions
regular questionnaires complaints book
