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.


My daughter's favourites have been water play, painting and outdoor play.

It has been lovely to see L playing happily when I collect her.

A special mention to Michelle, fantastic relationship with child. Excellent communication with parents. Always friendly and cheerful.
