All children are assigned a keyworker who is responsible for tracking and recording your child’s development. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and your child will be monitored in the 7 areas of learning. Observations will be recorded using a digital learning journal, which parents can access any time. This will include observations of your child, photographs, examples of work as well as the tracking document following the EYFS.

Each child is planned for on a weekly basis. This is informed by the observations of the child noting their interests, play preferences, milestones and accomplishments.

Tara House uses Tapestry software to host each child’s Learning Journal.

With this software in place you can check your child’s development and gain a wonderful insight into their nursery life.

For reassurance regarding Tapestry’s high levels of security please visit their site.

We also host two parents’ evenings a year for meetings where your child’s key workers provide feedback and work collaboratively with you to plan next steps for your child’s development.

We ask parents to get involved – helping us to set achievable goals for your child. Parents are also invited to be part of nursery life with opportunities such as leading mini lessons and coming in to read stories. If you have an idea we’d love to hear it.

We strongly believe in good parent partnership and value your input.
