Rachel Smales Childminder

Hello, my name is Rachel, I have been working with children since leaving school in 2001, I gained my diploma in 2005. I have worked in various day nurseries, agencies in schools and also a nanny for various families. whilst working in a day care setting I gained my foundation degree in 2013.

I have a very good understanding of child development and their emotional and welfare needs. I live in a detached house with my fiance and our 2 daughters. The children have access to all downstairs areas, I also have a safe enclosed garden, which has a slide, swing, trampoline, sand pit ect. 

I enjoy taking the children to the local park and having picnics in the sunshine, I bake with the children once a week and also make our own pizzas for tea. The children also have access to crafts and playdough in the playroom.

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

I would work with partnership with parents to understand any child's additional needs.

I work with the early years foundation framework and if i believe your child would benefit any additional support then i would work with you to support your child to access any additional services.

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

I work with support from the local authority and as such we have a wide range of specialists available to ask for advice and support. If you have any specific needs then please speak to me and i will endeavour to access the required support to fully meet the needs of your child.

How accessible is our setting?

It's accessible to get in and out into the setting but toilet facilities are upstairs.
