    Default Special needs childminding

    Hello everyone! I need a bit of advice and support really.. I'm opening up my own special needs childminding centre where I am renting a house out and completely making it special needs friendly.. I will be offering my services with 2 other childminders and will be open to PMLD and MLD. I will have a sensory library in the house and a messy play room for art, sensory room and lots more etc.. I also will be offering cooking and many more activities. I would love to hear what everyone thinks and even what people would love to see? I know most childminders accept special needs children but I wanted to do something different where all their needs can be met in one place with professional people with lots of experience. I'm based in Reading by the way thanks xx

    What a fabulous idea!
    Are you getting any help from your EY team to set you up and give you ideas and support?

    Are you concentrating on Learning difficulties or will you cater for physical disabilities as well?
    Please keep us posted on how you get on...any barriers or how easy it was to go down that route.
    All the best of luck!

    Sounds great. Good luck with it all, I'm sure it will be somewhere parents will love. You are very close to me btw, I'm a couple of miles outside Reading

    Wow I'd love to hear more about how you progress and find everything. I'm writing a dissertation at the moment about using a sensory environment to help with inclusion in childminding settings.

    Probably near me too!!!
    As you are renting a house, and no one will live in it (I assume ), will you still be known as 'childminders'?

    Sounds fabulous, well done you. There is nothing like that near where I live infact not much SEN friendly groups etc at all which is sad! I don't know whether this applies to you but I have recently set up and received a £500 grant to set up which was great!!

    Hi I have sent the OP a private message - not sure if you'll see it but I'm interested to know how you're getting on?
