Now that the children have successfully settled, staff will be using our Baseline Checkpoints to see how we can best plan for each child's stage of development and to identify any children who may require extra support with their communication and language skills, as well as any children who may be struggling with their personal, social or emotional development. This is a two way process between home and school and we actively seek parental input during our Baseline Meeting appointments in October.
The children are never 'tested', nor are they required to perform or complete set activities. Staff are experienced in working with young children and have a wealth of knowdledge about child developemnt in the early years. This enables us to use our provision and child-initiated play sessions to get to know each child in depth.
