Children need to be stretched, but not pushed beyond their capabilities, so that they can continue to enjoy learning. This is achieved at Tiny Tots through ongoing observational assessment which informs planning for each of our children’s continuing development.
For each child we make continual assessments based on observations of their play and activities.
The EYFS gives us a framework against which we can see where each child needs to further develop. The information gathered from the observations feeds into each child’s learning plans. These allow each child’s keep person to set up the rooms and plan different adult lead activities to help more children onto their next level or steps.
All of this assessment, observations and planning is completed on tablets and shared online. Parents can log in securely and see their child’s progress in real time. Parents can also add comments and ideas from home that can be fed into the learning plans and support their child’s learning at home.
This is a wonderful way to keep your child’s interests at the heart of their learning.
This online learning journal helps strengthen your involvement in your child’s development whilst at Tiny Tots and provides permanent record with pictures and videos of your child’s time at our nursery.
