The EYFS asks us to maintain on going assessments of your child‘s learning and development. Assessment plays an important part in helping yourselves and practitioners recognise your child’s progress. We will use ongoing observations to help us understand your child and their own unique level of achievement, interests and learning styles. These observations will then be used to shape and enhance existing learning experiences and create new ones. It is crucial that you, as parents, are part of this journey and we will be asking you to share your own observations on your child’s home experiences with us. Our on line Tapestry Learning Journal is easy and simple to use and enables you to have secure, confidential, instant access to your child’s Journal. You will be able to log on via your own personal password to see and read about some of the things your child has been involved in during their day at Funshine – a priceless snapshot when you may be missing your child during a long day at work!
You will be invited to attend twice yearly parent evenings to discuss how your child is progressing. However, if you wish to address any specific learning and developmental needs, at any time, please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s key carer or make an appointment with one of our managers.
