Ann's Angels Childcare

I offer ‘30 hours childcare for working parents’ for 3 and 4 year olds and can provide 2 year funded places.

I have been a childminder for 15 years and I'm based in the Consett area. I live with my husband Gareth and two children aged 11 and 17 years and our 2 dogs Scrappy and Brinkley.

Children have daily trips to places such as toddler groups, soft play and the library. In school holidays we go to places such as Centre for Life, the beach, parks and museums.

Children have access to a wide range of toys and resources as well as an outdoor area. We do crafts on a weekly basis which the children like taking home.

I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and provide activities to help further develop children’s abilities. Each parent will have access to their child's daily communication entry, assessments, observations and photos, wow moments and development tracking through Kinderly, an app through Pacey.

My husband Gareth works with me on various days and I have an assistant called Leanne.

You can also find me on Facebook, Ann's Angels childcare and childcare.co.uk, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.

How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

Working in close contact with parents, professionals and the council is paramount. All children have assessments completed when starting, this is also done every 3 months with observations and communication in between. Children with disabilities will have a Health Care Plan created in order to provide the very best care and support for the child.

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

Activities are planned for each child's age and ability by following the EYFS. Monthly topics are selected for the children to experience new and exciting things from around the world. This includes holidays, celebrations, nature, cultural differences and foods.

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

It's important to work closely with parents and the child's current setting in order to support a smooth transition. This can be done by sharing information about the child's likes and dislikes, having plenty of visits to the new setting with parents as well as by themselves to get used to the surroundings.  Speaking to the child about their new setting and asking them questions about how they feel is important, allowing them time to talk through their concerns and worries.
