PROGRESS CHECK AT AGE TWO
At Pre-School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines and it is a requirement that we undertake a progress check on your child when they are aged between 24 and 36 months.
We will provide you with a short written summary of your child’s development in the three prime areas of learning and development - Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Communication and Language and Physical Development.
The purpose of the check is to enable early identification of development needs so that additional support can be provided if required. You will be able to see how your child is developing and identify areas where your child is progressing well or where progress is less than expected.
Ongoing observations will be made by your child’s key person at the Pre-School and will be based on what your child can do consistently and independently. We will also use contributions from parents and other practitioners working with your child if relevant. If a child attends more than one setting the progress check will be completed by whichever setting the child attends most often.
We will provide you with a copy of the progress check for your information and comments. A copy will be kept in your child’s “unique” file at the Pre-School and any actions needed will be put into place. We will offer help and support if additional input is required from other professional agencies.
The progress check can be shared with other professionals, such as a Health Visitor, when they complete a two year health check on your child.
