At Banana Moon Day Nursery, our routines, activities and nursery environments are designed to enhance these four principles, offering children opportunities to play and practise their growing skills, ensuring that every child has an opportunity to learn and develop at a pace that is suitable to them.
We observe, assess and plan your children in each of these areas, allowing us to provide a variety of learning experiences that are not only of interest to them, but also building on what they already know!
Practitioners will observe your child on a regular basis to identify and assess the progress they are making, regardless of your child’s age or their attendance pattern at nursery. Observations help practitioners to decide where the children are in their learning and development and to plan what to do next.
Observations and photographs of your child will be placed in their own online Learning Journey. Practitioners will use the Banana Moon platform to capture your child’s learning, which will then be shared with you via the Banana Moon Parent App. We encourage parents and other family members to contribute to their child’s learning by using the Banana Moon Parent App to share photos and observations with their child’s Key Person – perhaps from a recent day out, activity at home or even while you are on holiday – we would love to see what your child gets up to outside of nursery!
