Key Person, Tapestry & Parent Consultations
As part of the Pre School and Early Years Foundation Stage, every child has an allocated key person. They will take observations photographs/videos of the child to provide information to support the Early Years foundation stage and to show you their progress throughout their time at preschool, We use Tapestry which is an online child development system, which will be available to parents to look at any time.
We usually hold parent consultation meetings twice a year (October & May). It is an ideal opportunity for parents to discuss their child’s development with their key-person, and talk about how their child is getting on at Pre-School and if there is any additional support needed for the child that the parent and keyworker can work on together at preschool and home.
To ensure that we meet our objectives, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).These are the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
