Under old EYFS, there was clearly written guidance that we should find a way to all communicate and share information about a child between as many settings as a child was attending.

Can anyone signpost me to this in EYFS12? Think I'm being dim, but can't find anything, or at least not what I'm expecting to see :blink: B) B)

Yes our childminders are excellent, the other nurseries in my area don't bother unless I do, I have yet to be approached first.

One of my minded children started at a pre-school setting last September and I sent in my Transition documentation and didn't even receive an acknowledgement :(

'Our' shared-care child started Reception class at a different setting this September and I took and collected her at the start and end of her settling in visits over 3 weeks, each time having a short chat with the Reception teacher. During one of these she mentioned how very pushy the pre-school had been...insisting that a member of school staff visited the pre-school. Reluctantly they agreed, rang them and made an appointment with pre-school - for a day that pre-school had been advised that the child wasn't attending as she was at her sister's sport's day!!

Needless to say it didn't make a very good impression with the Reception teacher !!

After the initial couple of settling in visits I mentioned that I'd bring my own transition documents when I next came. The Reception teacher said "please don't worry about it - I prefer to make my own judgement once I've got to know the child and I can tell a lot from what I've seen of your relationship with C already, especially with the comments from the parents on our Induction paperwork" :lol:

I passed the Learning Journey etc straight to Mum and Dad instead !!

…in order to develop normally, a child requires progressively more complex joint activity with one or more adults who have an irrational emotional relationship with the child. Somebody’s got to be crazy about that kid. That’s number one. First, last, and always.

That's a shame nona, we have good relationships with childminded children, and on the rare occasion we see any transition info from previous settings I send an acknowledgement letter with a brief update of how the child is settling so they have sharing info evidence
