How we deliver the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the baby room.
The snake is a photo layout of our daily routine starting with toast time and finishing with free play. Two photos will change on a daily basis, these will be of different activities we do. The snake is located on the window to the baby room, winding round the electronic photo frame.
The electronic photo frame contains pictures of the children partaking in activities we have done with them; it is updated on a regular basis. A selection of these photos are transferred to our website at www.playstationdaynurseryltd.co.uk
The blue and green sheet also located on the window to the baby room is a list of some of the activities that the children have had the opportunity to play with throughout each day.
The green pen means these are out because the children really enjoy these activities. The child's name who's main interest it is will be added in brackets. This activity will stay out for as long as the child / children stay interested in it, we will keep expanding the activity by adding new things. Just because a child's name is next to a particular activity does not make it exclusive for that child, all children are encouraged to join in with all activities.
The blue pen means staff have chosen these activities to get a balance of toys out. If they aren't particularly interested in the activity after it has been expanded it is changed for something else.
Tapestry is an electronic learning journey for every child within the nursery. We use Tapestry to record observations/photographs/videos of your child's/children's development. You can add your own photographs and videos of your child/children at play or doing something special when not in nursery with a short explanation of what they're doing so we can reference them to your child's/children's learning outcomes. When your child/children leave nursery to go to school, the learning journey will be sent to you as a PDF file for you to download onto your tablet/computer, you can also print this if you'd like to. You will then have a wonderful interactive journey through your child's/children's early life/lives. I'm sure your child/children will love to look back and reflect on home and nursery life as a small child, your photographs/videos from home and outings will make it all the more special.
