At Domi Domingo we are all inclusive and welcome all children to our setting, regardless of need. We plan activities specifically for all children, considering their needs and next steps to ensure that your child makes good progress whilst being in our care. We will work with parents/carers to ensure that your child is settled, and gains the best possible support whilst with us.
What do I do if I think my child may have special educational needs?
We would encourage you to phone our Nursery or just pop in! However if you would like to discuss your child’s needs in more detail, an appointment would be best with the manager and/or our SENDCO, so we would ask you to phone us on 0113 2783104 to arrange a mutually convenient time. During this meeting we will discuss how we would care for your child, but also liaise with you regarding any help you may already be getting. We would then get in touch with any agencies who are supporting you to ensure that we are working together as a collective to make your child’s transition to nursery as smooth and calm as possible.
How will the setting support my child’s learning and development?
We are very lucky at Domi Domingo as we have two special educational needs coordinators, one for the 0-2 yr olds, and one for the 2-5 yr olds. One of our coordinators would be your child’s key person, and would plan alongside you to provide activities to excite and stimulate your child. We will track your child’s progress on a regular basis and share this information with you.
How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs?
At Domi Domingo every child’s key person plans activities for their key children. This means that your child’s key person will work really hard to get to know your child quickly, and will identify areas of development and next steps for your child. They will plan activities at your child’s level to teach these. All of our activities are displayed so you can see what we will be working on with your child.
How accessible is the setting?
Our setting is all on one level. We do have steps to our door, but we also have a ramp suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
How will I know how well my child is doing?
Your child’s key person will seek to maintain regular contact with you regarding your child’s progress. We also have communication books that will contain details of your child’s day. We have parent consultation evenings where you can discuss your child’s progress in more detail, and you are welcome to take your child’s profile home at any time. We actively encourage you to add to your child’s profile.
How will you help me support my child’s learning?
We try and involve you in every aspect of your child’s learning, and encourage you to share your child’s interests. We will give you ideas to use at home with your child.
What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being and social, emotional and behavioural development?
We want your child to settle with us and be happy, so in the early days we will liaise with you closely to try and ensure this happens. Of course this doesn’t always go to plan so we will adjust your child’s time spent in our setting until they are settled.
If we need to access training to support your child, we will do, and will work in partnership with health professionals for this. We have a behaviour policy that focusses on using praise, and we would use this with your child. We also have a healthy eating policy, and would also use this with your child. Any dietary requirements are catered for.
What specialist services and expertise are available or accessed by the setting?
When a child with additional needs joins our setting, we aim to get in contact with appropriate specialist services as soon as possible to ensure we can support your child fully.
We have two SENDCO’s who can support your child on a day to day basis, but we can also refer to specialist services such as speech and language and STARS if we deem this necessary. We will of course, liaise with you every step of the way and tell you why we think the referrals would be beneficial.
What training and development is done by staff supporting those with SEND?
Our two SENDCO’s are currently undertaking SENDCO training to ensure they can support children with SEN effectively. IF any further specific training is necessary, we would ensure this was accessed.
How will my child be included in activities outside the setting?
Children with SEND are included in all aspects of the nursery day and this would include trips and visits. We would liaise with you to discuss additional resources and aspects to consider, and plan to ensure your child has an enjoyable experience.
How will the setting help children transfer to the next phase of education?
We fill out transition reports that require your input so we will liaise with you regarding this. We also invite a member of staff from the setting that your child is moving to into our nursery to see the child in an environment that they are familiar with. We are also happy to share your child’s profile with their next key person, however we will ensure that we receive your consent before doing this.
How are the setting’s resources/funding allocated and matched to children’s needs?
We will get to know your child, and plan activities that will help support your child’s development. We will use the funding to buy any additional resources, or to get extra support for your child, for example, a 1:1 worker or a specialist if necessary. We will also require your input about what you feel your child needs, and will work in partnership with you to ensure that any extra funding is used to support your child in the best way possible.
How are parents and carers involved in the setting?
We try and encourage you to get involved as much as you can! As well as making sure that your child’s profile is available at all times for you to look at and contribute to, we also have a board with our policies on that we are updating. You can contribute to this. We also have a suggestion box, and you will also have the opportunity to take our topic story home to share with your child at home. When your child does leave, you will be invited to your child’s nursery graduation.
