I have over 20 years childminding experience and two grown up children of my own. I offer a homely setting with both planned and unplanned learning experiences for children of all abilities and ages.
My home and garden are child friendly with a large variety of toys and resources.
I provide a fun, caring, learning rich environment for children from birth to 10 years. My regular hours are 7.30am to 5pm but I can sometimes be flexible and can start earlier and / or finish later on some days if needed . I can drop off and pick up to and from Hoyland Common Primary School and Nursery.
I provide healthy and varied home cooked food (An extra charge payable for short sessions - but included in fees for sessions over 5 hrs) and I will work with parents if a special diet is needed . References from parents past and present are available on request. I provide parent paid childcare and also 2 year funded places ,EEF , 15hrs funded nursery places and 30hr funded places for 3 and 4 yr olds (dependant on spaces available and parent eligibility ) . I have NVQ 3 in Childcare & Education .

All children deserve the best start in life I work in partnership with parents to help meet children's needs.
Schools Extended Local Offer Response
- How do we offer support to children or young people with a special educational need or disability?
I work with the Early Years Foundation Stage and this helps me identify when a child needs additional help
I would access additional training/research if I took on a child with a condition I didn't know much about. Carers are welcome to stay in setting with prior notice (dependant on other children present at the time and dependent on covid regulations )
The Early Years Foundation Stage is an individual play based curriculum and I observe your child and plan to their individual needs. I keep detailed development records which I share with parents regularly. I also verbaly update parents daily and also keep daily diaries which can go home every day if the parent wishes .
As a home based childminder it is very important that children feel comfortable in my home and I make sure children are well settled in my setting before they start and work in partnership with other settings when children move on. I work closely with other settings sharing information so children can feel secure in their new setting
This is in partnership with yourself and other professionals. I speak to parents at drop off and pick up times. They are welcome to visit outside hours for private discussions.(dependant on covid secure regulations )
I also communicate via text and email.
I have a facebook page Angelas childminding where parents can see the activities we do .
- What specialist training, experience and expertise do we have relevant to children with special educational needs and disabilities?
I am happy to work with any agencies your child needs including speech therapy , health visitors , doctors , physiotherapy etc.
I have experience of asthma and some allergies.
I have done private research about ADHD and Autism (rang for leaflets from support groups and researched on the internet)
I will access training for other areas as and when needed
- How accessible is our setting?
There is no wheelchair access as there are steps up to both doors.
As a home based childminder I can treat each child as an individual. I get to know each child and family well . This helps me to meet their needs well on an individual basis.
When I organise activities I make sure all children are able to take part if they wish.
