Learning & Development

Page under review

March 2018




Our provision for children’s development and learning is guided by The Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE;2012). The four overarching principles are:

1) A Unique Child
2) Positive Relationships
3) Enabling Environments
4) Learning and Development

For futher information on these please refer to our prospectus.

Each child is allocated a personal Key Person who is responsible for keeping records of the child’s progress and development within the curriculum, and liaising with parents.

Our staff continuously observe and monitor children to ensure that Learning and Development Plans (LDP) are targeted to each individual child’s needs and progression is made.  The LDP is a record of your child’s development over the period and details how together we aim to continue this progression.  Each term you will be invited to contribute to the LDP for your child.

In addition, records of your child’s achievements whilst with us are kept in their Learning Journal*, you are welcome to view this and add to it on request.

(* This is a photographic and work based journal detailing your child’s progress in play and learning, from those all important first day photos to their first attempts writing their name.)
