The Learning Journey

The learning journey is a continuous journey thorough a child's early years and is built on the things that they have already experienced. The learning journey is recorded in a book with the use of a collection of documents that help to provide a clear picture of your child's learning and development in the prime and specific areas of the EYFS.

Every childs learning journey takes a personal path that is based on their individuality and uniqueness. The learning journey's consist of observations, next steps, planned activities, learning stories, wow moments, individual assessments, I can and I said pages, photographs and art work. Your child's key person will link these things to the EYFS to build a unique picture of your child's abilities and plan forward next steps.

Parental Contribution

Contributions to your child's learning journey should not be left solely to your child's key person. Parents are their childs first educators and along with family and other adults that have contact with the child should be involved in their learning journey.

Parents/carers/family are invited to contribute and comment on their childs experiances away from the setting by using the documents in the corridors of the nursery or the post it notes on the parents board upstairs. There is also a comments facility on our website that can be used to inform us of experiances via email.

Parents are welcome to view their child's learning journey at any time, we do ask though that if you wish to speak to your child's key person with regard their learning and development you arrange an appropriate time as we can not always give you the attention required when working in the busy room.

Childrens learning journeys are available for all children. Pre-school children have continuous access to their own journeys and are encouraged to share them with family and be actively involved in the creation of them.
