At Otford nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation stage. This is a statutory framework, The EYFS sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes. We at Otford nursery use this statutory framework to observe and monitor your child's progress through out their time at nursery.
During your child's time at Otford nursery we use a system called Tapestry to observe and monitor your child's progress. When observations are uploaded to tapestry you will receive and email to access what has been posted into your child's learning journal. This enables you to post comments and add your own observations and also to see what your child has been doing with us.
when we post observation we will link the observation to the EYFS and the characteristics of effective learning. (The characteristics of effective learning are a key element in the early year's foundation stage. They detail the ways in which children should be learning from their environment, experiences and activities.)
