Development Records

As part of our Kids Academy Childcare active key worker system the staff carry out monthly observations on the children linking in with the Birth to three matters framework and the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum alongside three monthly developmental charts.

The developmental charts coincide with the developmental norms enabling the children’s development to be thoroughly monitored and recorded and then fed back to the parents during our six monthly parent’s evenings. These are logged and kept within your child’s personal file that follows them throughout their transition from room to room.

The charts allow us to monitor the progress your child makes covering their physical, mathematical, language and communication, social and emotional development as well as monitoring the progress that they make with their feeding and toileting skills. Additionally we also record the progress made with your child’s hand eye co-ordination and fine motor skills.

The staff record this and then monthly alongside their observations plan activities for your child to engage and participate in to allow these to be met through play.

Kids Academy Childcare in Warrington hold preschool parent’s evenings on a six monthly basis and are held separately to the Birth to three development evenings.

Prior to the preschool parent’s evening, parents will arrange a 10 minute appointment with their child’s key worker. The parent’s evenings ensure that parents receive 2 individual appointments prior to the child starting school.

In addition to this, school reports are written twice yearly, with copies put into their developmental files. Upon writing the last report before the child leaves to attend school, with parents permission, reports are sent on to their new reception teacher, outlining achievement areas and the stepping stone level they are working at.

This has been a popular addition and one that has been welcomed by reception teachers.
