Your Child's Development

We do observations of all the children, which are linked in to the profile folders. This is then used to develop planning and to help ensure we are applying all areas of the EYFS. The profile folder & learning journal will be used to help chart the progress and development of your child. The learning journal has photos and key pieces of work as evidence and is also a keepsake for parents when they move on from Little People Nursery.

Parents/carers are asked to fill in our ‘All About Me’ form regarding the child’s likes and dislikes and also a bit about their current stages of development and a baseline assessment. This gives us an indication of their progress at home, i.e. cruising with furniture, pedalling a tricycle, using a paintbrush etc.

Within the Baby Suite and Main Nursery all children have a 'Profile Folder'. These are updated regularly by their key-person and we encourage parents to look at their child's profile folder at any time (please speak to your child's key-person or manager to arrange this). These hold vital milestones that your children have such as crawling, first steps, using a spoon, drawing with a pencil etc. This means both staff and parents can watch the child’s development and is also a lasting keepsake for years to come! Profile folders are regularly monitored and any concerns the key-person may have would be discussed with the Manager and the Special Needs Co-ordinators and a meeting will be called with parents at their earliest convenience.

Curriculum Development

Little People Nursery works alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, which envelops several ideas that play is key. Children are competent learners from birth and relationships with caring adults play an important role in their development. We at Little People Nursery strive to ensure we have a diverse and stimulating environment to promote all areas of development. We have both child-led and adult-led activities to ensure all areas of development and all requirements of the EYFS are being met.

We have free-flow play to ensure children can access all areas of provision including indoor and outdoors and can also access resources themselves. This promotes independent thinking and also models good self-help skills and thinking skills. We are at the forefront of new ideas and initiatives and see each child as an individual on their own learning journey. Our effective assessments and planning cycle ensures all children’s needs are taken in to account and that they reach their full potential. When this is achieved, the child is school-ready and able to make an effective and smooth transition to the next stage of their learning journey.
