Planning and Developement

Your Child’s Progress

All children will be given a base assessment when they first enter the nursery to establish their present knowledge. The key worker will then devise a plan to increase your child’s knowledge in a way that they will find fun. You will receive regular progress reports and can speak to your child’s key worker at any time.

The assigned key worker will monitor your child’s progress. Observations of spontaneous child activity are carried out daily and you can have access to your child’s development folder upon request. We have a ‘Parent’s Evening’ to discuss and report your child’s progress with you. Notwithstanding, we are always keen to discuss this with you at any other time. Day sheets are completed every day enabling you to know the type of day your child has encountered as well as a parent board allowing you to read our weekly plans and any other information you may find useful. You will also find lots of information on this site as to what activities we have planned and current newsletters.

Children’s Choice and Interests

The staffs at Scallywags Nursery monitor and record information on children, on a daily basis (see observation sheet example). Our aim is to understand and develop upon a child’s individual choices. By incorporating these personal interests we can engage children more easily and devise ways to extend upon their knowledge and understanding and bring along advancement.

We factor into our weekly plan time for children to make their own choices, activities that are planned in response to a child’s interest and progressions, we constantly evaluate our own approach to make sure that we are delivering what is intended and include activities to provide balance across the curriculum.
