Observation, Assessment and Planning
Your child will have their own personal online learning journal. At Greenmount Preschool we use an online system called Tapestry. Your child’s key person and other staff will record observations of your child within their play or as part of adult led activities and these will be added to your child’s online journal which you can access using your own email address and password. The online journal enables us to track your child’s development and to help us to get to know them, their interests and most importantly, to find out where they are developmentally. Then we have a starting point from where we can plan activities, experiences and provision to support their development.
We use the Unique Child Profile to record children’s development and learning and this informs their Learning Journal. We use the Learning Journal to assist us in planning appropriate experiences and activities to help every child learn and develop in their own unique way.
The Preschool team meet up on a weekly basis to plan for children’s learning and development and to discuss the children’s interests and achievements.
