Susan Mary Bradshaw ( Childminder)

I have been a childminder for 30 years and cared for children of all abilities and nationalities. I get all my work through recomendations from my parents and schools I have a level 3 qualification and a level 4 NVQ qualification And level 3 pediatric first aid. My most recent qualification is doing CDL in computer skills and Advanced Safeguarding Training. I try to keep up to date with all training. I believe children should have a variety of experiences throughout their time with me and the freedom to be children, nothing too structured but extend their skills/learning through the activities they are doing. I make sure I know all the children's routines and likes and dislikes so they can be happy, safe and content within my setting. I am a firm believer of using manners and sharing with one another and showing children how they have to help tidy away what they have played with (Choose it, use it and put it away)

Other notes

I offer spaces to any child that needs it, I can adapt each session to suit any child’s needs. I care for children on short breaks, 2 year funding and 3/4 year funding.

I do have a dog, she is a Poochon, I did a lot of research before choosing her, she doesn’t malt so not dog hairs all over. She is also suitable for children with allergies as she is classed as a none allergenic dog. Her name is Popppy and she loves the children I care for, she is very friendly and loves cuddles.

Description

I care for a 18 year old young man with special educational needs, I have cared for him from being 3 months old so he like part of my family. He leaves this year to start a new chapter in his life by going to Barnsley College to extend his life skills. Sometimes it has been a challenge but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Schools Extended Local Offer Response

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

I keep up to date with relevant training for each child and make sure I know the full routine of each child and their needs and abilities. I do relevant checks on what each child can achieve and if they need help I will refer them to the relevant people to help the child. 

I will pass on any information verbaly and written form

One to one with parents and if doing any activities they would like to join in with I will encourage them to do so.

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

I have trained in first aid, makaton, autism awareness, team teach

How accessible is our setting?

I have no wheelchair access in my setting or toilet that can be accessed with a wheelchair 

I have just introduced a sensory area for the children, a dark room and different sensory toys. 

I am making my garden more private by putting extra fencing around small garden and my larger garden is being fitted with new fencing so all the children can have the freedom to run around safely on the lawned area.
