Each child is assigned a 'key worker', a member of staff who will oversee your child's development and time at Chalke Valley Playschool and After School Club. They will be responsible for carrying out observations about your child's needs, activities, interests and achievements. Your child's key person will work with you to keep this record. This information will enable the key person to identify your child's stage of progress. You and the key person will then decide on how to help your child to move on the the next stage. This Learning Journey is a unique memory of their days at Chalke Valley Playschool and will include pictures, work and observations, which are on show all the time ready for you to read.
All of our staff are fully qualified for their roles and attend regular courses, as necessary, in order to stay up to date with all the latest developments in education and government requirements. All will be happy to discuss specific needs, concerns or queries you may have about your child.
