Development records

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.

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.

Testimonials

Y is starting primary school. It has been good for him following the school/ nursery routine from an early age.

I have enjoyed working together with nursery staff toward Y's development and skills.

All staff were brilliant during Y’s potty training. Whenever Y had an accident in the room or on the carpet they were never disappointed having to clean the room or carpet deeply.

Kiddies' Cabin have looked after children's nutritional needs well and looking after them well in general.

A safe place for children and handy for working parents.
