All our children at each and every stage of their development have very many opportunities, each and every day, to learn so much through their play, with both child-led and adult led activities.
This ongoing development is further enhanced as we follow the guidelines set down by the governments Early Years Foundation Stage - commonly referred to as the EYFS. These guidelines were made mandatory for all setting from September 2008 and reviewed and revised for the 3rd April 2017.
Busikids Manager Charlotte ensures that all updates are understood and implemented by our professional team of nursery practitioners who also attend regular training sessions and staff meetings, so ensuring continuous provision for all children.
Each room has its own way of planning that incorporates observations for all the children to help assess their progress and to then plan for the next steps of their development, this ensures that all children are continually given tailored opportunities to aid their further development in all the areas of learning.
Each child's progress is also individually tracked to ensure that their needs are being met and they are achieving the best they can in their development, the children's interests and home life are incorporated into the curriculum wherever possible. We teach this through the materials and resources we use, inviting professionals in to talk to the children and going on outings.
We also ensure that the planning reflects a variety of religions and cultures, local communities and the much wider world.
Every child has a Learning Journal that is kept as a record of achievements and to show their progress, this is in the form of a scrapbook with photographic evidence and written observations, this is available for parents at any time and goes home with the child when complete, from 2018 this will be phased out as we gradually introduce out online portal - Iconnet and Parent zone, where we will be able to send daily updates, information and occasional pictures.
Regular Parents evenings are also held for one to one time with your child's key worker to allow a relaxed time to be able to discuss your child without the pressures of it being drop off or collection time.
As part of our Education and activities we bring in the local Maraca Jacks team who have a huge range of different songs and accessories that the children of all ages through the nursery benefit from.
It is always lovely to see different faces within Busikids and to see the children grow with confidence and join in more and more, then there are the children who will happily dance the day away with little encouragement too, it is always good for the regular staff team to be able join in and play with the children whilst learning new songs too.
