Fsp In Private Nursery


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have just finished my teaching degree and have been working in a private nursery in the pre-school room since April of this year. Some of you may know me, as I have previously posted a question about undertaking my NQT year in a private nursery.

Anyway....just wondering for you people that work in private day nurseries, is it compulsory to use the Foundation Stage Profiles in the pre-school room? as for some reason, we haven't been doing in my nursery and I thought it was compulsory as the children are aged 3-4.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Vicki - I agree with Louby Lou's advice, only reception use the FSP. You could try contacting your early years advisor to see whether your local authority has an assessment system or scheme of their own or one that they recommend you use? Local authorities seem to be doing that more and more, looking for some consistency in assessment amongst the PVIs.

Hi Vicki, I'm in Birmingham, the council nurseries have this year been part of a pilot of the nursery profile. I'd do what Wolfie suggests and contact your local EYDCP team in case its a nation wide pilot or just Birmingham. :o

Thanks everyone for your replies!

I was just a bit unsure that's all, as when I was on teaching placement last year, I was in a nursery class in a School and the teacher filled in the profiles for each child there, even though they were only nursery aged children.

Thanks again!

In Bristol we were using the nursery version of the Foundation Stage Profile but our early years advisor recommended us to set up 'learning diaries/profiles'.

They will need to be changed in light of the introduction of the EYFS. But they are much more appropriate and will be a lot more valuable to any parent or feeder school when leaving.
