Our Nursery has 4 main groups of children. We have our Busy Bees, Snowy Owls, Barn Owls and our Preschool. To find out a bit about each room within the Nursery please select the drop down menu.
The Early Years Foundation Stage emphasises the importance of key relationships for children, including those relationships between children, their parents/carers and a key person within a setting.
We operate a key person system at Kinderland within a team approach. This means that one of our lovely staff members will have a special responsibility for and relationship with your little one. Your child’s key person will be your first point of contact, they will be there to work with you to help settle your little one in and continuously further their development.
Although we believe that our key person system is at the heart of your child’s development within the nursery, we do strongly encourage positive relationships with all other staff, to avoid distress in the absence of your child’s key person, for example holidays and training. We always work as a team!
Parents are always welcome to call their key person during the day!
Monitoring Your Little One's Progress
Each child’s progress is observed and recorded using Eylog, a tablet based system that helps us monitor your child’s development. This is shared with you via the app or email by your child’s key team so that you can see what your child has been learning and how they are developing. There is also an option to share home learning; you can upload photos, videos and commentary to share with your child’s key team. Of course we are also able to capture lots of cute and wonderful moments to share with you via the app too!
For under twos a daily diary is completed sharing information about how younger children have eaten, slept and been throughout the day.
