I am interested in the approach of the son-rise programme.
I was delighted to get the opportunity to give this information to former Shadow Education Secretary: Tristham Hunt MP and Jeremy Lefroy MP.
It contains strategies which work well for both babies, pmld children and autistic children and is in-line with speech therapy ideology.
In essence the programme can be adapted so that the adult joins the child's explorative play to aid the child's speech and general development enhancing both EYFS learning outcomes and national curriculum outcomes and was found by listening to parents. The programme is American.
Exclusive, tailor-made tuition and childcare in an award winning learning environment exists at Wildwood Childcare Ltd.

" Safeguarding is effective. The childminder is confident about the process to follow if she has any concerns about a child's welfare. The childminder is a qualified teacher. She uses this training to provide challenging experiences that have a positive impact on children's learning. She attends other regular training to help keep up to date with current issues. Children are prepared well for the next stage in their journey" Ofsted March 2018
Comments from parents:
"I have nothing but gratitude to yourself for giving so freely of your time. You were wonderful as a teacher and at belting tunes out on the piano. I am grateful that you believed in an alternative way that in the end DID help X when convention refused this".

I really like the range of activities that Louise undertakes with x. They are diverse and she treats him like an individual as opposed to simply like 'a baby'. Louise's service is invaluable - you can't put a price on it!
Claire Orange: 5***** parent of pre-school child
I met Louise through the tots group on a Monday and Friday and she is brilliant!! Me and my little girl really enjoy going, there is always so much to do, crafts, messy play, going outdoors, stories and songs, learning about different foods, and most importantly snack! We would recommend these groups to everyone, thanks Louise for all the hard work you put in �

I would like to say a huge thankyou to you, for helping x to become the best she can be. She has a very bright future ahead of her. We can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. She is so settled and happy with you. With your help, support and constant encouragement she has blossomed into a vibrant, happy, confident little sweetie. Her talking is brilliant. She has achieved so much with you. X is going from strength to strength in everything she is doing.
