ABOUT US

The Brook Babes Settings

Passionate About Childcare!

I started Brook Babes in 1995 as I found it very difficult to get a childcare service that worked to the individual needs of my children and family commitments. I wanted to be able to go to work with the peace of mind that my children were cared for in a happy, secure and stimulating environment, which bridged the gap between home and nursery/school life.

Looking back, they were solid principles on which I have built on over the years. I am more convinced than ever that enriched childhood experiences are paramount. To do this we employ caring professionals, with the same passion as I hold to improve children’s experiences and understand the importance of children as individuals.

Meeting Your Childs Needs

S.E.N.D

At Brook Babes we aim to meet each child’s individual needs in an inclusive manner through tracking their developmental stages. We use the SENIT Developmental Joural, as this enables us to break down the stages of development into achievable targets making it easier to show progression children have made.  Where needed our SENCO, who works across all settings, will make a referral for extra support.  The SENCO is BA Hons qualified in Early Years and works closely with Key People, Managers, Parents and other Professionals to support children with additional needs.

In addition to this we adapt our provision to make them accessible by changing the environment/equipment so all children can free flow around the room. Sometimes this is through simple measures such as using Comic Sans Font for visually impaired, using a variety of communication methods for the Hard of Hearing.

Practitioners receive additional training on how best they can provide activities and adapt their routines to promote the child’s unique development needs. We work in close partnership with other professionals such as the Stars Team for Autism, Speech and Language Therapists, Childrens Play Therapists, Children Centre, Scope, Health Visiting Team and many more.

Each carer builds a close relationship with their children, which help children to explore the environment and try new things with confidence. A key person works in partnership with the parents to ensure that each child is cared for appropriately and responds sensitively to their feelings and requirements.

Our commitment to

Safe Guarding Children

As part of the Senior Management commitment to the importance of Safeguarding Children we have a designated safeguarding team and Champion to promote the welfare of children.

We regularly audit how our practice meets legislation requirements such as Working together to Safeguarding children 2018, EYFS and Inspecting Safeguarding in Education 2018.  All Designated Leads are trained with the LSCP and share Practice through our Safeguarding Management Meetings.  The Designated Team is made up of professionals including a Social Worker, Trained Peadeatic Nurse, EYP and EYITT and keep Practitioners up to date with training on what to do in case of a concern, who to contact if they are not satisfied with action taken. 

All children have a right to be safe. It is our responsibility to provide a safe and interesting environment, with age appropriate resources, which help develop curiosity, coordination and physical abilities. We are signed up to Child Accident Prevention Trust,  Leeds Safeguarding Partnership for news letters and updates on how to safeguard children, details of safety are added to parent notice boards/news letters.

To do this we carry out thorough risk assessments on a regular basis and use Citation to carry out Health and Safety checks and training. There are fitted coded locks on entrance and alternative collection procedures in place to protect against strangers entering the building. This also requires comprehensive employment procedures including enhanced DBS checks, ongoing training, (in which everyone takes responsibility for safeguarding) and implementation of their roles in protecting children from harm.
