Each child is an individual therefore follow every child’s own interest.

At Benhall Preschool…………

At Benhall Preschool, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and development matters. We take inspiration from a variety of approaches such as the curiosity approach, Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Each child is an individual therefore we follow every child’s own interests, Ensuring the best development outcomes for all children in our care.

Introducing Key Person

Each Child in the setting has a key person who will take extra special interest in your child; learning their likes and dislikes, their family, friends and any special events etc. They will take a big role in helping to settle you child on the first few days and will continue to reassure and support your child when necessary. They will celebrate your child’s achievements and joyful times. Your key person can often be your first point of contact to pass and receive information relevant to your child or discuss any concerns or changes of circumstances as well as to share information between home and setting.

Tapestry Learning Journal

You will be able to access your child’s learning and development online via the Tapestry login, this will include photographs and observations to support your child’s development and show you their next steps. Parents are invited to contribute to the Learning Journal, ensuring we have a full, well rounded, record of your child and their development.

Parent Partnership

Parent partnership plays an important role in child’s learning and development therefore at Benhall Pre School we always welcome parent’s contribution of ideas and information towards their learning journey as well as the day to day running of the setting.

The Staff will continue to work together as a team with all the children and support each of the children, however the key person system allows the setting to ensure every child’s needs are meet as an individual. We hope that this two-way flow of information will benefit your child’s development and help him/her to feel confident in the setting.

Staff will be happy to discuss any aspect of the key person system or learning journey with you at any time.
