Inspection Without Eyfs

We wre OFSTEDed twice recentlyand eventually got a satisfactory. Last year we had 10 EYFS. So far this year we have only one, who is dropped off by parents around 4 and picked up about 6 twice a week. So this prompts my questoin. How on earth would I have proved my capabilities with EYFS if that inspection had been when no EYFS were registered to us.

As a childminder I often have to fulfil the requirements of the Eyfs for children who attend after school only, a few hours a week.

 

I have a scrap book for each of them into which they can put photos of themselves or things they have made. They might add pictures they have drawn or a few words of their special writing.

 

I then add links to the Eyfs, ideas for next steps following on from their interests, information linking their experiences with me to school and comments from parents etc.

 

I try and add something every couple of weeks so that the scrap book fills up over time.

 

A friend of mine cuts out monthly calendar sheets and puts those in, with circles round the days the child has attended. I might do this next time I start a new scrap book because it is useful evidence of how often the child comes vs how much you can write down / include in the book without it all getting silly.

 

I have also written a CP plan for them showing how much of the Eyfs they already meet through our daily routines (snack, independent choice, toileting etc). This is useful to help meet the Eyfs requirement of informing parents about what children do with me.

 

The rest is shown through my group planning, which again is linked to CP.

 

I hope this helps you :o

Surely if you had no EYFS children in at the time they would have simply asked you questions regarding this area, or looked at what you had done in the past to deal with previous EYFS children. There is nothing you can do about it if you have no EYFS children registered at the time and they couldn't count this against you.

I know this is the theory - but for a play bqased provision for whom EYFS children have traditionally comprised around 2% this would surely be just about impossible

 

As it happens we did have some, and we eventually passed, so that was more or less OK>.
