I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as guidance to planning activities for the individual children in my setting. This guidance is produced by the department for children, schools and families and provides advice and information on supporting children's learning and development and welfare. I use this information as well as conducting observations on your child to enable me to plan suitable activities.
I provide every child with their own 'Learning Journey' book. By using photos and linking the activities to the Early Years Framework the books show the child's achievements and how we are working towards the next learning goal. This book is shared with you on a regular basis to keep you updated with their achievements. Once your child reaches their fifth birthday or leaves my setting these books are for you to keep as a memory of their early years.
AIl Parent's are provided with a E- dairy which they receive daily this will include information about what activities we have done that day, food eaten, naps taken and any photo's that have been taken on that day, parents are also given a secure pin to my website where they can view any milestones achieved. I will also use this to update you with any information that is relevant to the care of your child and it enables for you to do the same.
