Assessments:

 

Assessment plays an important role  in helping practitioners, parents and carers  to recognise children's progress, understand their needs and interests, and to continually plan activities for the child that is challenging and meeting and tailoring to individual needs.

 

Every key person maintain a close link with their children's parents and work closely together to achieve the best possible learning experience for their child.

 

'Formal' assessments are obtained through daily observations of children acting and interacting in their play; everyday and planned activities.

 

Parents  are updated regularly on their children's progress and once a term, practitioners holds a formal consultation meeting with parents and/or carers to discuss their child's development and support learning at home.
