Every child will be given a key person before they start who will help them settle into nursery. They will also make sure your child’s learning and care is tailored to their individual needs.
The key person will organise key group activities twice a day, both in the morning and afternoon with the children allocated to their care. The focus of the group time is to promote literacy, communication and language. Throughout the week there is a focused book for each key group and many different activities are planned around the book, linking them all to the EYFS.
As well as being a useful point of contact for parents and carers, your child’s key person helps your child to take forward their learning and development by building on what they already know and can do. This ensures that each child makes satisfying progress.
We think it’s so important to keep parents informed as to their child’s progress, so that you can share and enjoy your child’s unique learning journey. We use a terrific, interactive online learning journal to help us with this, called Tapestry. Our staff use Tapestry to record regular observations on your child, which you can log into and read at any time.
In addition to Tapestry, we also host parent’s evenings every term. All parents and carers are welcome to come along and chat to our staff at these events. This is a lovely opportunity for the children to show their families their work and all the things that they have been doing in the Nursery.
