Victoria Redgrave

Childminder

I have been a registered childminder for nearly 20 years, looking after children from all ages and nationalities. Your child would be welcomed into a caring, safe and friendly environment. I aim to develop your child’s needs through play, offering a wide range of toys (indoors and out), books and arts/crafts. We attend local baby and toddler groups, parks and the library.  I encourage all children in the setting to respect others needs and cultures. My aim is to have fun in order to expand your child’s development. I have received 'OUTSTANDING' in my last inspection with OFSTED for the third time.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

I offer a fully inclusive setting and will under going any specific training required that supports children with SEND.


As a registered childminder, I aim to follow the requirements of the EYFS (2014) and the Childcare Register (2012) and provide an inclusive environment for ALL children and their families. I am also required to comply with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) Code of Practice 2014.

I will do this by:

• Regularly talking to parents/carer’s about the individual needs of each child
• Talking to children about their likes/dislikes and interests.
• Encouraging parents/carers to tell me about family culture/religion/beliefs.
• Providing a wide range of resources and activities which reflect the diversity of our local area and further afield.
• Supporting each child through sensitive observation, regular assessment and individually planned activities to achieve their full potential.
• Providing individual support depending on the child’s needs.
• Using the 2 year progress check to highlight if I believe a child is falling behind in any of the prime areas of learning.
• Focusing on the positive things that each child can do.
• Leading by example and challenging any form of prejudice.
• Providing resources which challenge stereotypical ideas.
• Sharing information about children’s learning and development – and providing ideas for home learning - with parents/carers as required by the EYFS.
• Seeking permission to ask for support from outside agencies where appropriate.
• Attending appropriate training to ensure I have the skills and knowledge needed to support children and their families.
• Encouraging children to respect each other as individuals.

If I believe a child needs additional support, I will speak to parents and ask their permission to approach agencies which will support their child. I will follow the graduated approach laid out in the Department for Education SEND code of practice to ensure every child receives the best possible care and learning opportunities.
