Continuity of care and Handover
Our nursery is unique in that the staff work a four day week. This means that the same person is caring for your child throughout the day and not handing over to someone else half way through.
This ensures that we can provide fantastic continuity of care for your child. At the end of every half or full day you will have the opportunity to speak to a member of staff who has been looking after your child. This Handover will detail
It is also a chance for you to ask any questions, ask for advice, give us some feedback or update us on your child e.g. health or sleep.
Tapestry – Our online interactive learning journal
We also want to ensure your child`s learning and experiences are recorded at every stage so you can monitor and celebrate their achievements. To this end, we use a fully secure online learning journal called Tapestry.
Each child`s learning journey is documented by our staff through observations, photographs and videos. This is all linked with the learning, development and assessment guidance detailed in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework.
Parents and guardians can access their children`s journey securely online and through mobile apps for both iPhones, iPads and Android devices. You can also comment on entries from the nursery and even add your own.
And when your child reaches the end of their time at The Old School Nursery, we present you with their entire Tapestry journal on disk. It`s a reminder of their achievements and journey and, we hope, full of memories to cherish.
