Development records

At Jack In The Box Nursery we hold personal development records for each child.

Each development profile contains on entry and summative assessments, observations, evaluations, and next steps for learning goals including photographs and art work completed by the child.

Personal development records are confidential and are kept up to date by each child’s key person.

Parents are able to look at their child’s personal profile at any time if they wish. There are opportunities for parents to meet with their child’s key person throughout the year, whether it be to discuss the two year old development check or to look at their child’s progress.

On transition to school, the setting’s Transition Officer will share information with the child’s class teacher. This allows the school to access the child’s stage of learning and development. The term before children start school, we gather some photographs and information about the school and collect uniforms, allowing  each child to make connections with the school before the transition period. If a child moves to another setting, the nursery Transition Officer will also contact the setting to share information that allows children to move nurseries confidently.


We are relocating to London due to a job change which is why A is leaving the nursery.

She improved a lot in her daily schedule. A goes to sleep early in the evening and has cereals/toast as breakfast every morning. She is much braver than before and confidently speaks to everyone. Thank you to the whole "Jack In The Box" team and their continuous efforts. A will miss all.

Special thanks to Carly. Because of her continuous efforts, A is now following a schedule which was missing previously. Thank you Carly once again.
