Assessing & documenting individual children's development & experiences

This policy details how at Osborne House Community Nursery we record and document individual children's learning, development and experiences.

The policy explains how we use a Key Person system to document children's learning, how we involve mums/dads and carers in this process and how our documenting process works hand in hand with the Early Years Foundation Stage and our Curriculum Policy.

Our Transition policy details how we aim to support you and your child as they start with us at nursery and as they move from one age range room base to another within the nursery.

We want all transition periods to be as smooth as possible offering support to both children and their families throughout the process, as we are aware that some children and their families can sometimes find transitioning into a new setting, and then moving rooms throughout the setting quite difficult.

Working with Parents

This policy details our commitment to working alongside parents and carers to support all aspects of your child's care and learning.

Parents and carers are a child's first educator and we believe that only by working in partnership can we best support a child in reaching their full potential. We aim to provide high quality childcare in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.
