Childminder

I have been registered as a child minder since 2006 I am also registered as an early years foundation stage provider. I live with my partner and my two children aged 21 and 18 in Lowestoft, I live in a 3 bed semi house, I use the whole of the ground floor, I also have a fully enclosed safe garden for outside play and we also have a pet rabbits, which are kept in a hutches outside. I offer a home from home service so I children can be at ease but still learning through play. Outings are made on a regular basis to the local playground areas, zoos, local broads park which includes a pets corner, large safe play areas and feeding the wild life we also go to inside soft play areas, shops, beach and library. I offen do creative play eg painting, cooking ,making their own playdoh etc.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Equal Opportunity Policy/Procedures

I make sure that I promote equal opportunity practice for all children, treating all the children with equal concern and respect.

I value and respect the different religions, origins, cultures and languages so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereotyping. I will not discriminate against any child on the grounds of disability, class or family status.

I give opportunities for the children to learn about other people’s traditions and cultures; they have access to a range of books, puzzles, music toys etc., which provide a positive image, and diversity of life.

Equal Opportunity /Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) /Procedures Policy

I aim to follow the requirement of the EYFS and provide an inclusive environment for all children and their families. I am also required to comply with the requirement of the equality act 2010 and the SEND code of practice 2014.

I will:

-Regularly talk to parents/carer about the individual needs of each child

-Talk to the children about their likes/ dislikes and interests.

-Encourage parents/ carer to tell me about family culture/religion/beliefs. In return I will encourage the children in my care to learn more about all cultures and religions including their own. This will be done by reading, cooking, colouring, eating specialist foods from around the world, also celebrating any special festivals.

-Encourage parents to share festivals, special occasions and anything that may enhance the children’s learning and understanding.

-I value and respect the different religions, origins, cultures and languages so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereotyping.

-Provide a wide range of resources and activities which reflect the diversity of our local area and further afield, including resources which challenge stereotypical ideas.

-Support each child through sensitive observation, regular assessments and individually planned activities to achieve their full potential.

-Provide 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 prime areas of learning.

-Focus on the positive things that each child can do.

-I will not discriminate against any child on the grounds of disability, class or family status.

-Lead by example and challenge any form of prejudice.

-Sharing information about children’s learning and development and providing ideas for home learning with parents/carer as required by the EYFS.

-Seek permission to ask for support from outside agencies.

-Attend appropriate training to ensure I have the skills and knowledge to support children and their families.

-Encourage children to respect each other as individuals.

-All children will have equal access to appropriate facilities and activities.
