Every child’s learning and development will be tracked in a range of ways and will be centered around their individual needs and interests. There are seven areas of learning. We have implemented an electronic learning journal called Tapestry. It offers a fascinating insight into what your child gets up to at Pre-School.  They contain photos and observations from staff as well as areas for your own comments or feedback.
