While your child is in the baby unit, we feel that it is imperative that the information
remains in written format so that nothing is missed. The staff will maintain a daily diary.
This will provide you with the information about your child’s day. It will include their
food/fluid intake, nappy changes, sleep pattern and any other relevant information.
This will be given to you to take home every evening. This will also give you the
opportunity to provide any information that you think the staff should know
i.e. if they are teething or have had a restless night. We understand that communication
can sometimes be missed when you are in a hurry to get on to work or drop siblings off at school.
In the older age range, staff will maintain your child's diary through our eyLog system.
They will still record all relevant information; food, sleep, nappy changes (where applicable).
However, once this information is shared with you when you collect your child,
it will then be sent directly to your email for your records.
When it is time for your child to move on to the next unit, their records will go with them.
This will provide their new key person with the information needed to continue your
child’s learning. Again, these records are available to you at any time.
Before your child leaves the nursery to go onto fulltime education, you will be invited to
an informal parents/carers evening to discuss your child’s progress and the information
in their “Transition to School” booklet. This will be filled in by your child’s key person,
using the information gathered throughout your child’s time with us. You will be given
the opportunity to add any comments to the booklet. A copy of the booklet will then
be forwarded to your child’s school to provide their new teacher with key information
about your child to aid the settling process when he/she begins school.
