Development records

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

Each development profile details a child's starting point upon entering the nursery, followed by summaries of learning and next steps for learning goals to be achieved over each 6 week period. As well as this, formal observations and photographs are included. Parents are encouraged to discuss and comment on how their child is developing within the home environment.

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.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5.

This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

Nurseries, pre-schools, reception classes and child minders registered to deliver the EYFS must follow a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
