At Muddy Wellies we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage to help us observe, plan and document your child’s development. When starting with us, a keyperson will be assigned to your child and they will be responsible for the planning for your child and documenting their achievements whilst with us. We use a whole setting approach to the planning which changes every half term (or when needed) under the themes listed below.
The planning is based on what the children are interested in and what learning intentions they are working towards. This means that your child will have the chance to access lots of different activities and have the chance to revisit them and practice their new learning throughout the days they are with us. We will document your child’s progress with us in two ways; one is through Tapestry, an online learning journal where we will upload photographic and video observations to your account and the other is a ‘WOW’ book where your child’s WOW moments are recorded.
