I have almost all the paperwork in the work place, the children have individual diary, but I dont have a lot of learning journey/observation and their attendance, I'm sick with worry..I'm going to get striked off...I was supposed to go for the week end with the family but didnt go in order to work but I cant focuse, cant motivate myself ..Some cheer up please ??
attendance is really important. I was told off because I didn't have the exact times by.the.minute the children arrived and left. Observations - do you have photos you can quickly put together? I only have daily diary and photos for the EYFS crap - am hoping this will be enough for my inspection next year!
I'm good at my job, my mindees are happy and we do have a close bond ! One of the mum said, even if you get poor, I still want you to look after after my ds, he loves and we love you !! Hopefully I wont get poor but still :-(

I'm doing my attendance register, luckily I have put the arrival time and departure time on their diary, I'm just going to write in the official format...The inspector to who I have spoken to seems nice, so maybe it'll go ok, I'll be able to relax a bit during the inspection..After, this inspection, I think my life will be better, no more sleepless night, no more anxiety! Thank you ladies !
Is there an official format? You might be doing some unncessary work there, and if you show the inspector something that was obviously cobbled together at the last minute rather than the records you actually update each day she may not be impressed.
Mrs a - I'm just putting on the ncma weekly attendance record.
I think I'm going to fail, she is never going to be able to see I'm good with the children, just have to hope that they'll come and give me some cuddles during the inspection, will need the cheering up.
My printer is not working and dh is not going to come before 10'oclock instead of 7 as he promised.
If you have the exact arrival time and departure in their daily diary then that is all you need, you have the evidence, don't start making it up it it will be obvious.
Make sure you have all your risk assessments in place, these are very important.
Make sure you know current guidelines for safeguarding children in your area and where you have to report any concerns.
Have all your paperwork ready and laid out for the inspector, it saves time and questions.(best advice I was given)
Go on the childmindinghelp forum there is loads of fab advice.
Don't panic, what you haven't got written down if you can tell the inspector what you do and how it works for you then that will be ok, it doesn't all have to be written down. If you observe the children I expect you have written it in the diaries, all you have to show is how you use this to plan the next steps for the children.Tell her how you are beginning to use the development matters statements in the practise guidance to see the current development, thats the sort of thing she wants to hear.Write yourself a few notes. Have a look through the eyfs notes.
Have a few key words ready to say from the eyfs guidance, show how you use the document or if you don't use it much tell her how you are learning by attending training etc.
Go on the ofsted website and read some recent reports it will tell you why people are being marked down it will also show you what they are looking for.
Its too late to panic now, just chill and show how capable you are, act confident even if you're crapping yourself inside, Good luck xxx
Yeah, no need to re-do the register if you have it SOMEWHERE. Funny, I was in a panic about all that stuff as I had it written down but not signed by parents. Well, she never even looked at it. She didn't look at much of my wonderful paperwork too as she said 'i'm more interested in seeing what it's like for a child here' - this is what it SHOULD be about!!! The problem is, you never know what your inspector will be hot on as they all seem to be different. The main thing to do is TRY and relax and just be yourself. You'll not get striked off for things like that!!
