Throughout your child’s time in the Early Years achievement is celebrated through the recording of learning outcomes in an online, interactive Learning Journey.
Over time it will tell a story about your child – their learning, their friends and the activities they enjoyed sharing with others. Our Early Years teachers carefully observe each child at play, understanding and supporting their individual wellbeing and development, getting to know our students as unique people with special skills, interests and ideas. The more we understand about your child, the better we can specifically support him or her.
Please feel welcome to join us in watching out for and noting new things by contributing to your child’s interactive Learning Journey. So much happens so quickly. When you tell us about your child, a clearer picture unfolds and together we can plan more effectively to help progress their learning. We can share pleasure and excitement in their learning. At the beginning of the year, we will advise you of how you and your extended family can contribute to the Learning Journeys wherever you are around the globe. We will regularly look through the Learning Journey with your child to remind us of happy times, providing a starting point for talk about shared memories. When children are ready, they can also choose to put things that are important to them in their Learning Journey. Though it is online, it belongs to you and your child.
At the end of the academic year a written report summarises your child’s learning in all of the areas of learning to complete the picture of their development throughout their time in Nursery and Reception.
