Tracking your child’s progress at nursery

Posted on December 16, 2015 at 9:59 pm

Often parents think that their child’s progress in their learning and education is only really tracked when they start school. This is not the case as all nurseries and child minders have to be inspected by Ofsted and part of the criteria that they have to meet is to keep accurate records of how the attendants are progressing in many aspects.

For this to be assessed it is vital that accurate records are kept by the setting and compiled in to a report. This report is available to all parents/ carers of the children and should look in to how they are progressing in these areas: Areas of learning, personal social and emotional, physical, communication and learning, literacy, maths, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.

Once the child has been assessed, the report will show where the child currently is progression wise and targets to achieve by the next time the report is created. These targets are purely there for goals to help keep parents and staff reminded of what areas the child may need encouragement in.
