Our priority is to safeguard and support your children to thrive

Our dedicated practitioners will tune into the individual learning needs and interests of your child, ensuring that they are fully supported to reach their full potential.

We follow the EYFS framework to plan and assess the children's learning (opens in new tab).

Each child has an individual educational profile, created by their key person, which can be accessed by parents online.

Activities and experiences are then facilitated that will promote the next steps in their learning and observations and assessments are carried out by staff. This helps staff to track each child's progress and ensure that all areas of development are being fully supported.

We use an online resource called Tapestry to track your child's progress (opens in new tab). Staff can securely upload pictures and information which you can review and comment on online.
