Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Development Journey

Here at Brook Babes we recognize and value that children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives more than any other time. We relate to these years as the building blocks of life.

Throughout the settings we use a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage 2012.

There is 7 areas of learning which we use to track your child development and plan activities that are from each individual child’s interests so they can develop new skills and knowledge.

Every 4 months we write summative assessment for each child, to show the individual progress that your child has made.

The EYFS has 3 main prime areas, which the first area’s we focus:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

These areas are the most essential for your child’s development and future learning.

As your child grows the prime areas will help them to develop skill in 4 specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

Tapestry online Learning Journal

At Brook Babes we use an online Journal called ‘Tapestry’, where your child’s Key person will observe and evidence your child’s learning. This observation is then added onto your child’s Tapestry account, where you can then log on to your very own app and view observations which include pictures, videos and art work.

To get a more accurate account of your child’s development, we need your help!  You can add your own photos and quote’s from your child as an observation from your Phone or other device. Your child’s key person will then link these up to the EYFS giving us a more complete picture to be able to plan activities which both stimulate further learning and they enjoy.

You will be set up onto Tapestry once a consent form is filled out and your child is settling into the setting.

All this information is stored on a highly secure server which is monitored closely.
