Our curriculum is based on the children’s current interests and needs, from on going formative assessment which we carry out on termly on our iconnect systems enables us to observe children as they act and interact in their play, everyday activities and planned activities, and we use all the current tools to gather information from parent’s from sharing news, home observations. We ask parents to carry out what can their child do when first attend the setting by the keyworker and parent going through our “On entry” baseline forms, these are what to expect – we ask parents to highlight statements from the EYFS to in order to indicate to us a good baseline of where their child is at currently.
Each room works towards a “routine” tailored to the individual child’s needs. But within our sessions we offer a range of activities as part of our routines Such as: Small group times, Tales tool Kit, Toothbrushing, Stories time, Singing time, Outside free play, Free flow snack.
We assess how young children are learning and developing by observing them frequently. We use information that we gain from observations, as well as from photographs or videos of the children, to document their progress and where this may be leading them. We believe that parents know their children best and we ask them to contribute to assessment by sharing information about what their children like to do at home and how they as parents are supporting development.
