I have been a childminder for 26yrs. I provide a warm caring and family environment which I hope makes the children in my care feel at home. I have a variety of toys and equipment for all ages which include outside play, i.e. slide, trampoline, bikes, cars sand and water play. We have art and craft activities which the children love to show to their parents at the end of the day. I enjoy taking the children out to the local parks, beach, farms, library and museum. We also attend children groups.

- Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities
I would accept all children with special needs and provide additional support where necessary. I would give opportunities for all children to participate in activities, play opportunities and to be an equal and valued part in the setting. Should I have a child with SEND. I would refer to the code of practice in order to Assess, plan, do and review. I would work in partnership with parents and with their permission consider involving specialists to support their child where needed.
