- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
All children's progress is monitored from entry onto an online system which tracks developmental progress, this will help staff identify any learning gaps, and staff will use their knowledge from training such as five to thrive, every child a talker, sensory processing etc to work with families to identify and support children's learning needs.
