At Patcham Village Pre-school families receive weekly updates on Tapestry: capturing some of the wonderful experiences children have been enjoying.
You will receive photographs of your child (subject to parental permission) enjoying the many activities and experiences we offer at Patcham Village Pre-school along with a brief explanation of what they are doing.
It is crucial to all staff at Patcham Village pre-school that our knowledge of our children is not in the shape of written data and evidence, but in the knowledge we hold of them; knowledge that we gain by being 'in the moment' with every child, talking to them and our parents and carers. Assessments which we carry out will be useful, but not take us away from children for long periods of time.
Parent/teacher consultations are held three times a year and are a chance for you and your child's key-person to talk about their progress at Pre-school and any issues that may be causing a concern. We understand life is busy and different for every family, therefore the consultations will be shaped around your needs and are held via: telephone, face-to-face or written summative assessments - you choose.
We encourage too families to share with us experiences children have at home or on holiday, which we then talk to children about and look at together.
