Childcare Information and Additional Needs

Settling In

How will you help children to settle into your setting?
Following an initial phone telephone conversation, families are always invited for a home visit. This often happens during the weekend but evening sessions during the week can be arranged if required. Settling in sessions will be discussed at this point depending on the child's age and needs.I always work really closely with families to get this right so that new children have a smooth transition to Ecco's Childcare.


How will you communicate with parents/carers about their child's progress?
I am always available to talk to face to face during drop off and collection but can make arrangements to talk to parents at a specific time if required. I tend to look after school aged children currently but when caring for younger children, I keep a Learning Journal and write a 2/3 reports a year sharing progress and next steps. I always involve parents in this process. I use Whats App to share photographs on a daily basis and for days out.

Details of SEND experience and training
All children are unique and individual. they develop at different rates, achieving developmental milestones at different stages, I work at their pace whatever stage they are at and work closely with parents and other professionals to plan the next steps.
