Your child’s learning journal will be completed online by their assigned key person. The online learning journal system we use is called Tapestry and is a secure online programme that parents have access to using their own email address and a password of their choice.
All parents only have access to their own children’s profiles so it is very safe. This system allows you as parents better access and more involvement with your child’s learning and development.
We ask that parents fill in the child’s ‘all about me’ section and reply/comment in the journal to compliment home-school relations and consistency within your child’s learning and development. We also ask you as a parent to add observations and any trips, birthdays, new achievements, etc to show parent input in your child’s learning.
Early Years Foundation Stage
We follow the statutory framework set out for children from 0-5 years, known as the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). This framework is used in all settings and continues into Reception, your child’s first year at school. This framework sets standards for the learning, development and care of all children and is linked to each observation and activity that we provide the children in our care. All children learn in different ways and at their own paces so we adapt and encourage learning and development in many different ways and through many different experiences. We hold regular parents evenings, giving parents and staff the opportunity to discuss the children’s learning, accomplishments and any concerns there may be. Alongside this we also send home termly reports based on the achievements the children have met through their learning and these are also completed within the statutory requirements of the EYFS.
Areas of Learning
The different areas of learning that we follow in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage are as follows…
Communication and Language (all ages)
Physical Development (all ages)
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (all ages)
Literacy (from 3 years old)
Mathematics (from 3 years old)
Understanding the World (from 3 years old)
Expressive Arts and Design (from 3 years old)
