At Kiddies’ Cabin we hold development records on each child. These contain information, observations and dates regarding learning and development goals reached by the individual child along with photos and examples of art work.
These records are confidential and are regularly kept up to date by each child’s key worker. If at any time the child’s parent wishes to view their records they are more than welcome and if preferred a meeting can be organised for viewing and discussion.
Every month the child’s key carer will use the developmental records information to assess where a child is on a developmental stage and decide which areas of development to focus on next. We believe that parents, as the child’s primary carer have a key role to play in this process and are invited to make suggestions as to the direction of the child’s development, in partnership with the key carer.
Twice a year parents are invited to meet with their child’s key carer to look at the developmental folder and discuss their child’s progress during a parents evening.
F is leaving as we are moving house.
The most positive experience for F was settling in - this was the first time she was cared for by someone other than her Mum or Dad. It has been very positive to see her settling into the nursery routine - meals, naps, activities. It has also been wonderful to see her develop lovely relationships with the staff, she seems to learn new words and enjoy new activities every day.
It has been an extremely positive experience for us and we are very sad to be saying goodbye.
