Ms Marz Farrell

I am a registered childminder with over 18 years’ experience working in childcare. I have over 7 years in early years as a practitioner as well as experience as a Deputy manager and Special education Needs Co-ordinator (SENco) of a children’s nature nursery. I have a lovely large bright indoor space with free flow space between the indoors and the outdoors, which has a large garden and patio area. I am situated in the heart of town with access to the beach, Prince Albert’s gardens and Durlston Country Park. The setting is designed to enable independent learning, curiosity and where nature, art and the environment are a key part of learning. Children are free to explore and utilise their own natural learning style and interests.

Wheelchair accessible
There is good access to the property for buggies and wheelchairs, a ramp to gain access inside the building could be used if needed.
Parking availability information
There is ample parking on the street outside the property and along 2 adjoining streets. Although there is a driveway outside the property, this is part of the YHA and has a no parking policy.
Toilet facility information
There is a bathroom on the same floor as the space being used. It offers accessibility for younger and older children alike. However due to the size of the bathroom and the changing equipment it would limit space for a wheelchair but doesn't mean its couldn't be used at all.
Other Facilities
I have a lot of Special Educational Needs (SEN) experience and training, the facility is designed and set out in a way so that all children with varying needs can access the resources. There is calm space and a large outdoor space. Resources have been created and sourced based on sensory interaction and enabling independence.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
I have 10 years’ experience of working in a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) school so have experience in supporting children with a wide range of SEND such as Emotional Behavioural Disorder and Pathological Attachment disorder and Autism. I also have my Early Years SENco training and experience meaning I am able to write EHCPs, chair TAF meetings and have links to outside agencies which has helped me gain valuable experience working alongside other Early Years Professions such as Health Visitors and other SENco’s from primary schools. I have training in lots of various SEND areas including autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), Sensory processing disorder and qualifications in supporting Speech and language for 5 to 11-year olds. I also have training in WellComm which is for Early Years baseline assessment and support in Speech and Language. I aim to provide the best possible learning environment for any child with SEND. I am continually updating my knowledge and skills within this area, if you would like further information please just ask.
