Deborah Jayne Hargate (Childminder)

Hi and welcome my name is Debbie Hargate. I live in Cudworth and have been childminding for many, many years. I can offer a very safe and secure loving fun home for a child where all my little ducklings can laugh learn and play.

I have a beautiful large room backing onto a safe enclosed garden where the children can play and run around. I offer a safe clean and loving environment for all the children in my care and I work alongside my husband and daughter who are both also registered with Ofsted.  My daughter works with me full time she also as a full paediatric first aid certificate, full DBS and is up to date with safeguarding training. My last Ofsted inspection in 2018 was graded 'good' therefore I can offer 2,3,4,year old funded places for up to 30 hours per week. 

We live on a very quiet road, no traffic can get through the top our road.  All children play in the large room at the back of my home, This opens up to our safe and fully enclosed garden. 

I can pick up and drop off from Cherrydale and Churchfield schools in Cudworth . My husband Steve helps out with the school runs and is registered with Ofsted. Working alongside my daughter Becky means that I can cover shift patterns from early morning till 6pm at night. So why not give me a call.

Regards Debbie

How do we offer support to children or young people with a special educational need or disability?

I keep full development records for all children in my care and follow the EYFS. This allows me to see if any problems with the child's progress are occuring, and will help me identiy any issues that they might be having.

If the child has any additional learning needs I would seek help and support from professionals so that a care plan can be put into place.

I will always help prepare my younger children for school. We regularly talk about what will happen when they leave me and what exciting things they will be getting up to at school.

I send out a monthly newsletter to my parents and ask then to raise any concerns with me.

What specialist training, experience and expertise do we have relevant to children with special educational needs and disabilities?

Training has been done on SEND

How accessible is our setting?

A risk assessment will be carried out before any trips or outings are taken. No child will be left out.

There are steps to the front of my property but I would be willing to alter the front of my home, if need be.
