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 service for children from birth to 15 years. My regular hours are 7.30am to 6pm but I can 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 ) .

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 have an assistant who works on a voluntary basis, I can call on her if needed. 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)
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. I also communicate via text and email.
I have a facebook page Angelas childminding where parents can see the activities we do .
I always share planning etc with carers by notice boards/letters/verbal discussion.
- 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 etc.
Spoken to doctor with regards to asthma.
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 attend .
