Learning journeys 
The information provided by Parents in the 'All about me' books is valuable to the Staff as this helps to assist your child's developmental records and help us to develop each child's next steps and learning plans. 
Parent and key person meetings 
There will be an oppurtunity for parents to speak to their child's Key Person and look through their Learning Journey and discuss next steps, as well as any concerns or worries you may have in an arranged meeting; parents will be notfied of dates and times. 
The booking form will be available in the main entrance, however, If you wish to have an evening appointment or a home visit please speak to Andrea to arrange a convenient time for both parents and key person. 
These meetings are an important part of our parental involvement agreement and provide information for parents and Key Persons about every child in the setting. 
If you are unable to attend, or have any questions, please speak to Andrea. 
Key Person and Tapestry Update 
We use Tapestry as a way of recording each childs development and learning and gives Parents/Carers the opportunity to be involved in their childs learning journey. We have loved the comments you have left and the pictures of home learning and activities; your comments and feedback are important as these contribute to your child’s development record and learning journey. 
Your key person is there for you to discuss your child’s development, any concerns you or the key person may have about your child’s behaviour or development, and to discuss any other matters with you. This may be at the beginning or end of the session, if you require more time and a quieter place to discuss matters please arrange this with your key person.  
Please refer to our Tapestry agreement regarding Terms & Conditions of use. 
Parental Involvement  
Little Chestnut's encourage home learning with a range of themed activities to be completed with your child once a week, please post any photos of your child completing home learning onto tapestry, or email them to us and we can then add them to your child’s learning journey. 
We love to have our parents/carers involved, therefore, we welcome any parents/carers who wish to volunteer in our sessions, should this be to assist in a home learning course, help at a coffee morning or just wish to be part of the pre-school, all are warmly welcomed. 
As part of our information sharing, you will receive updates either through email or text, informing you of events and also reminders of any outstanding forms and fees.
