Your child will be allocated a key worker, who will help to settle your child in and keep an eye out for their needs throughout their time here. The key worker will also keep a record of development and help to plan their ‘Next Steps’. Your key worker will also be your first point of reference for your child and is available to talk to you about any concerns you have, although as we are a small Pre-School, all staff will have equal contact and know all the children very well. You will get a chance to discuss your child’s progress at Parent’s evenings, as well as having the opportunity to attend open weeks and parent information sessions.
You will recieve an e mail from Tapestry to the address you gave us on your pre-school application form.
“Tapestry” is the name of the on- line Learning Journal system to which we subscribe.
This will provide you with a link to log in to your account and how to set your own password. The e mail is only active for 24 hours, so please try to activate it within this time. If you miss the time frame, let us know and we can resend it.
Once you have done this you will be able to access your child’s development and progress records when ever you like. These will include observations of your child during pre-school sessions, sometimes with accompanied photographs and links to the Early years Foundation Stage. You will be able to see at which level your child is working at and ideas for “next steps”. There is also a box for your response which we welcome and hope that with your input we can work in partnership to provide continuous learning at home and at school.
