Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings
All children have a learning journal this is available at all times for parents to look at.. I observe the children on a regular basic.
I would discuss any concerns with the parents i would also talk in confidence to a west Berkshire early years advisor .
I will work with the parents involve and discuss things with them .if there is any training /courses that would help i am happy to take part with these.
each child will be encouraged supported to achieve their goals at their own pace.
I use the eyfs framework as a guide I take into account the child's age abilities as all children are at different stages .
I plan accordingly and encourage all children to take part and be involved . I will ask parents what their child enjoys doing and follow this in my setting.
I would work with the parents, pre school, nursery, school and professionals and ask for advice ideas to help the child .if parents agree visit family home for ideas and feedback on things to support the child .use pictures, photos, posters, signs, visual timetable to help them communicate and understand what we do / routine.
I would take into account the child's age, routine, likes, dislikes, any additional needs then work out a plan to support each child.
In confidence talk to others, look at what courses /support there is that may help me. Each child has a learning journal which can be seen at anytime. I am happyto talk to parents anytime if they have concerns.
All children are treated the same, they are all encouraged to join in and take part. If needed I will adapt activites to support their needs. I will get advice from parents when planning a day trip to keep their child safe, secure and happy.
My house is accessible but we dont have a downstairs toilet.
Transition to another setting can be worrying and upsetting for a child. I will work with the parents / new setting and talk to the child about whats going to happen. I am happy to go with the child to visit the new setting and show them the learning journal.
I carry out planning, observations, daily talks with parents, learning journals are sent home often for parents to look through and discuss any concerns with me.
Miss D Addison
I am available anytime if parents need to discuss anything.
We have a chat when dropping off /collecting their child. Parents are aware of my complaints procedure and I would hope that they talk to me first so we can resolve things,
