The Childcare Act stipulates that early years providers must ensure that their provision meets the learning and development requirements as specified in the EYFS. The Act states that this Order can specify the arrangements which are required for assessing children for the purpose of ascertaining what each child has achieved in relation to the early learning goals (ELG). This process involves practitioners observing children to understand their level of achievement, interests, and learning styles, and to then shape learning experiences for each child reflecting those observations.

This course will ensure that all staff are not only aware of these obligations but are fully skilled in how best to conduct observations and use them to inform their practice and individualise learning for early years children.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand the importance of observation, assessments, and tracking
  2. To know the EYFS – welfare requirements and expectations of Ofsted
  3. To understand baseline assessments, observations, tracking, and documentation
  4. To know the expectations of the early years practitioners
  5. To be able to document enough information for analysis
  6. To be able to inform parents and carers as to the content of the progress check and what the process entails
  7. To understand the process of supporting children who may need additional support

This course will ensure your practice is in line with the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, The Early Years Framework and The Foundation Phase. It will also support your continuous professional development in line with the Early Years Teachers Standards.
