Inside the diaries, you will find…
(1) Childs Profile:
This allows for important information about a child to be recorded, such as allergies, languages spoken, activities that are particularly enjoyed or activities that are particularly not enjoyed.
(2) A Daily Diary Section:
Here you will find space to list a child’s general activities throughout the day. There are also specific sections to document activities, including sleeping/napping, toileting, drinking and eating.
There is also a section for a child’s Key Person to write messages home and vice versa, to enable a clear line of communication.
(3) An EYFS Development Tracker Section:
Towards the back of the diary you will find an EYFS development tracker, along with key sections of the governments Outcomes and Development matters documents.
These can be used to show parents exactly how their child is developing in line with the government guidance. It also shows what parents can be doing at home to aid with their child’s development.
(4) Our Easy-Codes system:
We have coded each of the pages in the Tracker Section so that they can be referenced in the daily diary section, to make it easier for both the home and the childcare setting to make links with the government guidance.
