Each child starts a special learning journey when they join Little Acorns Day Nursery and this journey is documented under their own profile on the Famly App.

Each child is observed during play and activities and these observations are used to assess which developmental goals the child is achieving and which they need support in. These observations and assessments are used to plan future activities, purchase new resources and organise outings.

The Learning Journey also contain:

  • parent’s contributions/observations about their child’s interests and development.
  • photographs of your child during their day at nursery.
  • evidence of your child’s work, this could be pictures, numeracy problems, paintings, cards, photographs of 3D models, examples of scissor work, handwriting etc.

All this information is used to plan activities and freeplay resources for your individual child to extend the child’s learning in areas they are excelling at and support their needs where necessary. You will be sent a PDF of your child's journey on their last day at nursery for you to keep.
