We fully appreciate that regular assessments are
key to helping parents, carers and our staff. All assessments, available
to parents and carers at any time, allow our staff to recognise the
progress of children, plan activities appropriately and identify areas
where additional support might be needed.
We will provide a daily update on each child’s activities, comprehensive
weekly newsletters and hold regular parent evenings to discuss progress
and findings in a more formal environment. We keep records of each
child’s development throughout their time with us and these records
move with the children throughout their time at Cherish Day Nursery.
Additionally, at the end of the EYFS when a child reaches the age of
five (or, whenever a child leaves for school), an Early Years Foundation
Stage Profile must be completed providing a well-rounded illustration
of a child’s knowledge, understanding and abilities, their progress
against the goals, their readiness for Year 1 and other helpful information.
This profile will be shared with each child’s school.
We encourage all forms of assessment to be a mutual process.
