LAYING A SECURE FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE LEARNING
We are sensitive to the individual development of each child and ensure that the activities they undertake are suitable for the stage that they have reached.
Children need to be stretched, but not pushed beyond their capabilities, so that they can continue to enjoy learning. This is achieved by observing the children in a systematic way, we use an online
system of recording observations and assessments called 'Tapestry, to monitor progress on their learning journey towards achieving the Early Learning Goals as set out in the “Early Years Foundation
Stage”. Your child’s online journal is always available for you to view and contribute to. We believe that it is important to work in partnership with parents/carers and welcome everyone to
play an active role in supporting the child’s learning journey.
The Areas of Development and Learning comprise:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
