Come and talk to your child’s keyworker about the EYFS and how we apply it in the nursery, the themes and projects in each of the rooms and the assessment and reports for each child

The primary purpose of the EYFS profile is to provide year 1 teachers and parents with reliable and accurate information about each child's level of development as they reach the end of the EYFS. This will enable the teacher to plan an effective, responsive and appropriate curriculum that will meet all children's needs, to support their continued achievement more fully

Assessing your child

This is done without putting any pressure on the child, they will not be 'tested' in any formal way,

 all assessment will be done on a
continual basis,
based on observations.

Regular reports on each child’s progress will be made, and parents are invited to parents evenings

Helping your child

Ask what they have done, and what they like and don't like about nursery, encourage them to ask questions, listen and try new skills at home.

 Reading your child stories and nursery rhymes and involving them in activities such as shopping, cooking, cleaning etc. helps in the growth of life experiences.

Don't forget to praise them
when they have done well
