Happy Hands Childminding

I provide and encourage learning through spontaneous and planned play opportunities. Children lead what we do which develops self esteem and ensures the best type of learning and individual development. We enjoy the outside environment daily & using local parks. As a member of Forest Childcare Association visits & activities to these natural spaces are planned daily where children are able to explore the natural environment, experience healthy physical play and many fabulous learning opportunities.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
As a registered childminder I am the trained Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) co-ordinator for the setting. I keep my SEND training up to date and access further online training to develop my knowledge and understanding. I have completed An Introduction to Children Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder & Raising Developmental Concerns with Parents training. I have experience in caring for a young child with Autism & how my setting can be adapted to provide an environment that is engaging and caters for a specific need. I have learnt how parents of a child with SEND are vital in providing the best insight and knowledge about their child and I strive to work closely with parents / carers to ensure all needs are met by myself within my childcare setting. I am able access relevant agencies to provide information and guidance for myself, children and families. I have worked closely with Portage who visit my setting to support a child and have also added detailed development information to support EHCP (Education, Health Care Plan). Please contact me for more information.
