Wheelchair accessible
I work from home in a semi detached house in Shaftesbury; my home is very accessible as we have good access from the front and the back of the property with a little step at both doors. So if needed we could put a ramp next to the door step to allow easier access for a wheelchair. The ground floor of my home is used for childminding and I have downstairs toilet facilities. I have secure, enclosed rear and front garden for outdoor play.
Parking availability information
On site parking. Drop off facilities.
Toilet facility information
Ground floor toilet.
Other Facilities
I am responsible for making sure your child is safe and secure, both emotionally and physically throughout transition from my setting to pre-school. I maintain an inclusive service, My provision is risk assessed before each session for safety. I am first aid trained, all medication is stored in a secure place, and I use a record book to keep note of medications held and dosage if required. Any adults in the house over 16 years of age have had a CRB check (Criminal Records Bureau) but from now on they are calling it DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service). I have policies and procedures in place which you can go to to read guest book entries and information about my service. If necessary I would support the well being of the whole family parents/ child/young person with what is now called Early Help Assessment (EHA) this can be used to support earlier intervention and to improve joint working and communication between practitioners. This has replaced the CAF (Common Assessment framework) from late 2018.
