Children’s progress and future learning requirements are assessed through observations and discussion. Observations of children help the staff to assess the progress which children are making. They help to plan the next stage of learning and development for each child. Observations are important because they help us to:

  • Develop good relationships with children and their parents.
  • Base appropriate play and learning experiences around the children’s interests and needs, and identify any concerns about their development.
  • Develop further understanding of their unique and individual development because the rate and pace of learning in young children is irregular.

The Nursery’s records of the development of your child are available to you at all times. Staff are always happy to discuss these records with you, welcoming parents input to help us build a really good picture of each child’s individual interests and needs.

Using lots of evidence to support our recordings, such as observations, photographs, products the children have made or drawn and information from parents, we are able to build a portfolio of each child’s progress and development. For this we use an online program called Tapestry where parents can view their child’s learning journey at any point. Parents can also upload onto their child’s account with any new achievements or exciting events at home and with family and friends.

Once we have reviewed the evidence we have collected for each child, we create a summary of the child’s achievements. These are based on the seven areas of learning and are updated regularly. These records will be available to parents.

Health and safety is considered of upmost importance and the Nursery practices a range of saftey policies and procedures which are available for you to read. To ensure security and well being, we allocate a ‘key person’ for each child. This helps us to ensure that each child is individually being cared for and feels cherished.
