Working Together for Your Child
We maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set by the Welfare Requirements of The Early Years Foundation Stage. This ensures that we are able to:
give time and attention to each child;
talk with the children about their interests and activities;
help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide
encourage children to explore and be adventurous in safety.
The setting keeps a learning journal for each child. Staff and parents working together on their children’s learning journals is one of the ways in which the key person and parents work in partnership. Your child’s learning journal helps us to celebrate together their achievements and to work together to provide what your child needs for his/her well-being and to make progress.
Your child’s key person will work with you to keep this record. To do this they will work with you to collect information about your child’s needs, activities, interests and achievements. This information will enable the key person to identify your child’s stage of progress. You and the key person will then decide on how to help your child to move on to the next stage.
