EYFS emphasises the importance of working closely with parents/carers to get them more involved with their child's development, both at home and at childcare.
Parents and carers are encouraged to contribute to the daily routine at the nurseries, such as story time and festivals, with our open door policy. Parents' evenings take place three times a year, along with parent groups and parent reps.
Children are observed as part of the practitioner's daily routine, children's trackers are completed to ensure that each child progresses in line with their developmental milestones.
Observations and trackers are also used to enable staff to recognise if any children are exceeding their developmental milestones, or if they need additional support.
