How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?

• With positive encouragement, as they learn to be pleased with their own efforts as well as achievements. • As a provider I will use observations and assessment to plan for each child’s learning and development with parents using the EYFS as a guide. • I contact other settings the child may attend to encourage sharing of learning and development. • I undertake regular training to keep updated and improve my knowledge. • I engage in the community by taking the child to local groups and professionals. • Activities are ‘child led’ and built around children’s interests with my guidance to help children meet their individual next steps. • Activities in the home environment and outings allow your child to explore and investigate in a rich environment.

How will the curriculum be matched to my child's/young person's needs?

• These plans will be designed with the child’s parents with specific goals appropriate to their child’s stage of development. • These plans would be regularly reviewed to record goals/achievements to plan for the child’s future learning. • Each activity session would be made accessible where appropriate for each child’s inclusion.

How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?

• I will discuss the child’s development on a daily basis as well as at one to one reviews to discuss the child’s overview for short and long term planning looking at the EYFS outcomes. • These would include meetings with appropriate professionals and the child’s parents sharing plans and ideas to maintain optimum learning and development. • Parents can add to these plans and check observations verbally while looking at the child’s learning and development folder. • Children often take favourite play and learning activities home to continue their development and personal interest until their next visit. • Children also bring favourite play and learning items to the setting to continue their personal interest in the setting. • I intend to encourage the child and their parents supporting their relationship practically, physically, emotionally and personally within my skill base. • Accessing professional support alongside this. Any concerns are firstly shared with yourself and with permission I seek further advice from the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) coordinator or other relevant professionals.
