The Learning Journey
The Learning Journey is each child’s individual story of their time at nursery. It is full of examples of art work, photo cards of the child’s achievements and WOW! moments. There is also growth information such as hand and foot prints and fun activities for children to measure their height.
The Learning Journey includes information from the very first day each child starts the nursery and it is added to continually by the child’s Key Person.
These are fascinating for the children to look at and are also enjoyable for the child to be involved in adding information to themselves. We also encourage parents to get involved with the Learning Journey and they are lovely for the parents to have at the end of their child’s time at nursery.
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.

This is our introduction to the EYFS for parents
L has made good friends and there are very caring staff.
As parents, the support during lockdown with the nursery remaining open has been invaluable.
We have had a consistently positive experience with the vast majority of the staff.
Little Dragons is good value because of the opening times, great activities and generally a very positive experience.
Thank you for your continued support and for looking after our little girl.
