Information for families in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

Cole, Kelly (Little Prints)

I live in a semi detached house in the Muscliff area of Bournemouth. I have an enclosed garden with lots of fun activities and resources for the children to use. The downstairs of our house is open plan, so the children are able to use the lounge and dining room which leads on to the kitchen. I believe in good family values, encouraging sharing, manners, and of course fun for the little ones. I encourage the children I care for to learn through play and to be confident and independent. I like to make the most of area we live in so we enjoy trips to the beach, parks and walks in the forest. I also visit our local toddler groups, music groups and library. I live close to our local pre-schools and would be available to do drop offs/pick up if required. I have 29 years experience working with children at various ages. I hold the following qualifications: BA hons Degree in Early Years (Level 6), NVQ level 3 in Childcare and Education, Paediatric First Aid certificate, Completed the introduction to child-minding practise course, Senco training. I also attend various other training opportunities to ensure my knowledge is kept up to date.

Description:

How do you communicate with the parent / carer whose child has SEND?

 

I communicate information in a variety of ways, I will use a method that suits individual families. For example – chats at drop off/collection times, emails, messages, daily diary. 

How do you help children settle into your setting?

I offer all children two settling in sessions before they start at the setting. If children need more time or extra sessions this can also be accommodated. If children are struggling to settle I am happy to work with parents and arrange a staggered start and increase the hours if required.  

What help and support does your setting offer to children with SEND as they move rooms or move on to school?

When children move on to another setting or school I will provide the new setting with a detailed transition form that details the child’s progress. I will also make contact with the new setting to provide detailed information that will help the child’s transition go smoothly.  

 How do you find out how each child likes to learn?

When a child starts at my setting I spend time getting to know them. This is done through play, outings and observations. I also ask parents to provide me with as much information about likes/dislikes so I am able to use these within the setting. I then use this information alongside the Development Matters guidance and my own professional judgment to determine how individual children learn and plan for these within the setting.  

The children have access to all resources in the setting and are able to select activities that they wish to do. I will help children to develop their skills around their chosen activities.  

Inclusive practice / SEND training and expertise within this organisation

I hold a BA Hons degree in Early Years. I have also completed some specific SEN training including Autism  Awareness, Makaton and PEC – D. I have worked alongside specialist professionals to deliver programmes for individual children within my setting.
