PAULINE KETTLE - Registered Childminder
EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE ("EYFS")
The EYFS is the curriculum followed by all settings caring for children under the age of 5.
Every child in my care under the age of 5 will have their own EYFS folder which will contain a starting booklet all about your child, along with a progress sheel which tracks your child's development progress. There will also be photographs of your child taking part in various activities and works of art created by each child. These folders will be sent home with the child once a term for parents to see how their child's development is progressing.
The progress wheel shows the different stages each child should be reaching under the different areas of learning. My role is to observe the children during the activities that I plan for them, and as and when they have reached the various stages I can mark them off and then plan activities for the next stage.
