Learning Journeys

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.

Testimonials

F is leaving to start school.

Me and my husband cannot be more grateful for everything that everyone has done for us and for F. He has come on so well and we are so sad to see him leave. Everyone has gone above and beyond to help F with his journey.

Everyone here has done an incredible job but special mentions to Louise, Leah who has now left, Michelle, Lorna and Freya and Christine.

We feel the nursery offers value for money, for everything that everyone at Little Dragons has done there is not a price I could put on my child’s happiness.

We recommend the nursery, at Little Dragons it really feels like a little family and this was the key point for us to know that our child is cared for as we would care for him. I think the staff here are beyond amazing.
