Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings


My name is Shibani Jaiswal and I have a childminder home-based setting in place. I have been registered since May-2018. I am available to care for up to 6 children per day, 3 under 5 (out of which only 1 can be under 1 year old), and 3 from 5 to 8 year old. My working hours are Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm. I am open throughout the year except bank holidays and a week at Christmas time.                                                                                                                                                                                 

I do have a routine which occasionally gets changed based on the children's needs and interest. I have also made a few changes to my setting based on the children's age and requirements.

The aim of my setting is to provide home-based, good quality childcare to all the children.

I have  a NVQ level 2 and 3 in Early Years Care & Education. I also have a First-Aid certificate and  a Food & Safety certificate as I provide fresh and balanced home-cooked breakfast, lunch and tea.  I have also attended training sessions to help me in the management and leadership in running my setting smoothly. I also belong to the partnership and attend all the relevant courses provided by my local authority.

Local Offer Update Date:- February 2022

1: How does the setting identify children with additional needs or SEND?

I request all new parents to fill out an ''All about me'' form in conjunction with their child's red book. I also request all new potential  parents to visit my home to meet me and see the suitability and provisions I have in place are sufficient and appropriate for the needs of their child. I regularly do observations and track the children's progress through the EYFS curriculum and the language tracking tool. This also helps me with the planning their next steps  and has a positive impact on the children's progress.

2: How will I be informed / consulted about the ways in which my child is being supported?

I will inform/ consult with the parents about how I will support them by requesting them to contribute towards the planning/ next steps for their child through meetings and discussions  or online learning journeys.  I also discuss termly progress reports with them and they are encouraged to inform/ discuss with me if and when they have any concerns regarding their child's care or progress through meetings, e-mails, phone-calls or text messages.

3: How will the setting adapt the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for my child's needs?

I will be doing individual  planning/ next steps for each child based on their age and ability. If and when necessary I would happily adapt my routine to suit the children's needs and interest. If and when I have any concerns regarding a child, I would take advice from Jayne Clark who is an Early Years Development Officer at Brighter Futures for Children or Deborah Wood who is a Childcare Compliance Manager at Brighter Futures for Children.

4: What teaching strategies does the setting use for children with additional needs or learning difficulties?

I would work together with parents and if necessary invite professionals to visit and model support to create an individual plan for that child. I would also tailor my resourses  and teaching methods  as I have done a short training course for Makaton and have done SEND training as well. 

5: What additional support does the setting provide for children with additional needs or SEND?

I would request help and guidance from the Early Years team from my local authority and also request help and advise from other professionals. I also sign-post and direct parents to agencies that can offer them support and advice.

6: How will the setting monitor my child's progress and how will I be involved in this?

To monitor a child's progress I will use the Early Years Outcome/ Development Matters and also write up a 2 year old progress check/report. All observations will be available for parents to see and make comments/suggestions on their child's learning journey which is available  on ''Tapestry''. I follow the child's next steps by observing their ability, needs and interest. Focus of the week is attached on tapestry, informing the parents of what we are learning this week, such as - colour, shape, alphabet, number and book and rhyme of the week, so that parents can support their child with this at home.  Termly reports are also discussed regularly with parents at meetings and if necessary whenever they want to.

7: How do you ensure children with additional needs or SEND can be included in the same activities as other children, including trips?

I have adapted my resources and activities to include all the children of different ages and abilities. I always do a risk- assessment in the morning, of the premises and the outdoors. Outings are assessed one day prior to going out, along with maintaining child ratio.

8: How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?

To access my premises you have to drive/ walk down a very steep road/pavement and then climb a flight of stairs which has 14 steps. Hence my premises are not suitable for children with mobility difficulties/ wheel-chair users.

9: How will you support my child's transition to a new setting or school?

To support a child with transition to a new setting or school, I would discuss this with the parents first and request parents to share information regarding where and when their child will be going. I would then talk/ explain to the child using books and pictures and if possible visit the new setting with the child to build good relationships with key-worker or the class teacher. I would include a transition report  for the setting so that they know and understand as much as possible about that child's wants, needs and abilities and capabilities.

10: How does the setting assess the overall effectiveness of its SEN provision and how can parents / carers take part in this evaluation?

For SEN provisions I would take regular feed back from parents and complete action plans  for those children if necessary, including an Ofsted self-evaluation.

11: Who should I contact if I am considering registering for a place at the setting?

If anyone, is considering registering for a place for their child at my setting they  can contact me on :-                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Name: Ms Shibani Jaiswal, Mobile No: 07845 329446, E-mail:

12: What arrangements does the setting have for feedback from parents / carers, including compliments and complaints?

All parents are requested to discuss any issues directly with me through meetings, phone-calls, e-mails or texts.  I have an open-door attitude for verbal feed-back and complaints, though I always encourage them to write it down in my ''complaints and compliments'' book. All my policies are available for parents to see/ read any time  and any changes in them is noted and informed to them and then I get them to sign it, agreeing to the terms of the amended policies. On request I can provide written/ verbal references from my current children's parents.
