There are four guiding principles that shape our practice in our early years settings. These are:
every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
children learn to be strong and independent throughpositive relationships;
children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers; and
children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
quality and consistency in all early years settings, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind;
a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly;
partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers;
equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.
Capturing observations on the move!
Early Learners uses 2Simple, the multi-award winning app for gathering observations on the go. It improves the quality and consistency of formative assessment against the EYFS. Our practitioners enjoy progress tracking from birth through to the end of Pre-School.
It enables us to capture the planned and spontaneous but important moments of your child’s life
We quickly and easily take the photos of the child’s work, tag them with learner details and with objectives
All the evidence and observations are recorded automatically and instantly uploads to the markbook which uses a simple traffic light system to show each child’s progress against individual targets and identifies areas for intervention.
2Simple helps us by providing individual learners reports. It supports our practitioners to identify your child’s next steps so that we can set new challenges.
We can send you a copy of your child’s photographs and reports via email.
