Each child is allocated a Key Person who takes responsibility for your child’s development and is your main point of contact. The Key Person provides you with an insight into the day to day experiences of your child, by collecting different pieces of creative work, photographs and observations. This information is gathered into an individual Personal Book which is updated regularly, and shared with you and your child.
Plans For Learning
We work in partnership with you and your child to ensure their development is as exciting, varied and progressive as possible. Each child is unique and requires individual care as they develop skills and knowledge, following the path of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Children who begin their education in a learning environment that is vibrant, purposeful, challenging and supportive stand the best chance of developing into confident and successful learners (EYFS 2007). Effective learning environments are created over time, as Pre-School staff, Key person, and parents/carers work together, thinking and talking about children’s learning and planning how to promote it.
We encourage you and your child to arrange a visit to the Pre-School. This helps familiarise your child and you with the Pre-School environment, our routines and staff. We understand all children are individuals and respect their differing needs. Some children settle quickly and others will take a little longer. This also gives you and your child an opportunity to meet with your Key Person.
