Any advice will be gratefully received.

 

When a new child joins the setting ( full time nursery) and the parent has completed the starting points achieved at home how do other settings evaluate this to be able to link in with their work.

We do it the other way around, starting with the information we get from observing and engaging with the child and asking parents about the areas we are unable to cover, e.g. in the case the child doesn't speak English or don't do certain things we think they may be able to do because they're not fully settled.

We give the parents this (usually the section appropriate for there age or around) http://www.foundationyears.org.uk/files/2015/03/4Children_ParentsGuide_2015_WEB.pdf

 

As well as "about me" information to see what they like to do at home etc Interests..

 

Then when this child starts we can complete the child's baseline over a 6 week period approx.. and do a little observing in each area of learning to "double check" or to add on. Obviously children usually behave differently in a new environment, so once they are happy and joining in more, we have a good picture of this child and can then start to plan for next steps..

Yes it is an amazing publication.. and gives parents a great understanding of the EYFS and how we, has childcare providers are trying to meet these "goals" for their children, and hopefully, it open's up that vital communication from parents or carers from the start.
