At Castor & Ailsworth Preschool we follow the Statutory Early Years Framework (Sept 2021)** and use the Non-Statutory Guidance 'Development Matters' (2021)*
Further guidance for parents & carers
Our aims and goals are for children to have a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children are happy and excited to learn through meaningful and stimulating play experiences.
Our parents & carers are important to us so we aim to ensure you are well informed, supported and encouraged to link together with your child's development.
We use Tapestry (an online journal) which parent & carers are able to access for activities, individual key person next steps/plan(s), photo's, videos and termly summary reports.
We also post on our Facebook page events, information and activity photo's!
(with parental permissions on your child's registration)
Please speak to your child's key person if you have any questions or would like further support, your key person will be very happy to arrange a chat.
Our planning consists of our Preschool Curriculum goals and a long term plan.
The long term plan is a working document and we plan through each half term to suit children's 'in the moment learning', individual interests and individual development (next steps)
