Miss Teresa Regent (Doodle Dots)

Childminder

I am a registered childminder who has extensive experience of working with children of all ages. I have three sons aged eleven, seventeen and twenty four, two of which live at home.  I am a qualified Psychology teacher and have worked with children who have Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, ODD and OCD as well as specific learning difficulties such as, Dyslexia. I offer a warm, friendly family environment for children of all ages to play and learn. I have a fully enclosed garden and a large space for play indoors. My house is adapted for wheelchair access and I have full washing facilities downstairs and upstairs. I have a wide range of toys and books for all ages and embrace cultural diversity in my play equipment. I plan my day to include: indoor and outdoor play; arts and crafts; rhythm and rhyme; as well as cooking and quiet reading time. I value the importance of active learning and observe children as they play to plan future activities to promote development, in line with the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework. I provide home cooked meals and healthy snacks, catering for dietary needs. I am a member of  The Ipswich North Childminding Association. I have developed a set of policies and procedures for my setting and references are available on request. I am fully committed to offering a safe and stimulating setting to all children with a diverse range of needs and will work closely with parents to ensure that I provide an excellent childminding service. Please contact me for a chat, if you wish to consider me for the care of your child.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

At Doodle Dots we welcome all children from a diverse range of backgrounds and abilities. Our aim is to offer a flexible, affordable and accessible service to as many children as possible.

I have attended training courses in the following: Autism awareness, equality &  diversity, managing children with SEN, behaviour management, SENCO training, specific educational needs & supporting communication.

I have worked in schools as a SENCO, have a degree in psychology and have worked with children with complex social, emotional, mental and behavioural issues.

Our setting is adapted for wheelchair access and has full wash facilities on both floors.

I work with an assistant who has experience of challenging behaviour and has worked one to one with a child on the autistic spectrum.
