All Sorts Early Years offers a curriculum that works within the early foundation stage by using a high level of adult interaction to harness children’s natural interests and curiosities.
A range of activities and experiences are offered in order to promote learning in the seven key areas:
• Communication and Language
• Personal, Social and Emotional
• Physical Development
• Mathematical Development
• Understanding the world
• Expressive Arts and Design
Your child will be allocated a key worker upon starting All Sorts. Each key worker is responsible for a small group of children and tailors their groups curriculum to the unique needs of each individual child. The key person will build good links with children and their families to ensure that each child reaches their full potential Your child’s key worker will record their learning and compile a learning journal of special moments during the year, these will be accessible to parents/carers at all times.
During your child’s time at All Sorts they will be regularly assessed against the Development Matters outcomes using the Coventry Summative Assessment Tracker. This will highlight their progression and achievements and gives staff a clear and concise picture of each child’s individual development. The recording process takes place during three points throughout the year; December, April and June, a pen portrait is completed by your child’s key worker at the end of the year to complete the assessment.
Integrated 2 Year Health Check
As part of the Healthy Child Programme and the Early Years Foundation Stage we work in partnership with parents/carers to review children’s learning and development between the ages of 2 and 2 and a half years.
Upon entering our setting all children receive a Wellcomm check. This is a speech and language toolkit for screening and intervention in the Early Years. The screening tool uses a unique traffic light system to help us understand children’s current levels of speech and language. This assessment enables us to assess and track children’s progress during their time at our setting. A qualified Early Years practitioner who has specific training in this area carries out the assessment.
