We recognise that children learn and develop well when there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents or carers. We ask parents to photograph any special moments at home that the child can share at the nursery the following week or the next day.
Parents or carers are kept up to date with their child’s progress and development. The progress check on EYFS profile and learning journal with observations and photographs help to provide parents or carers with a well-rounded picture of their child’s knowledge, understanding and abilities.
The key person helps to ensure that their learning and care is tailored to meet their needs. The key person supports parents or carers in guiding their child’s development at home. The key person also helps families to engage with more specialist support, if appropriate.
