Documentation reflection

Documentation & Reflection

  • Is a process for documenting children's learning

  • It is not an end product, it is ongoing

  • Tools for documentation include photos, videos, drawings, written notes

  • For the children it helps them to reflect on their learning

  • For the practitioner it provides evidence to discover how the children are learning

  • For the parents it shows them what their child is doing to learn

Summary

Summary

  • The Reggio and Montessori Approach are a good way to look at children’s enquiries into the way they think and play

  • Makes the children use their imagination

  • The EYFS is used as a reference system, not a target/tick box system to move children on through their development

  • Reggio and Montessori both share similar visions when looking at the environment and how things are set up

  • Both use natural materials, Montessori does have it’s own resources which are specifically designed for the approach

  • Important to work with parents as partners we both want what's best for the child.

  • September sees the start of further developing our approach – we value your support!
