The role of the parents

Reflective questions:

How do your policies and procedures currently support the involvement of parents?

  • Induction

  • Admissions policy

  • How do you involve parents in supporting their child’s learning and development?

    How does your setting already value and support the learning that takes place at home?

  • More than just a display

A parent’s thoughts on the planned progress check

“If I was given a report or document written about my son, I would like the report to show that the person who has written it really knows him. Of course I know exactly what he can do when he is at home, because I am watching him and listening to him every day, but I would want to know what he shows when he isn’t with me, on the days when he is at nursery. When I watch him playing I often think about how he was a tiny baby such a short time ago and all the stages he has gone through to reach his present stage of development. So I would also want to feel that the report really recognises and celebrates all that he can do and, most importantly, shows something of his true self, of his uniqueness and all the wonderfully funny, surprising and exciting things he does each day.”

Review and reflect upon the child

Draft some comments or make initial assessment judgements

Discuss the child's progress with parent/carers, taking their views into account

Discuss any concerns about the child with the leader/manager of the setting or Improvement Advisor for childminders

Finalise the progress check

Provide a copy for parents and add a copy to the child's ongoing learning & development record

Put in place any actions to meet the child's needs within the setting or home

Consider if extra support is needed and gain parental consent to share information with other agencies if required

Luca enjoys the company of his key person Gemma and is beginning to take notices of the other children in the group. He is a quiet and happy boy.

Luca has recently begun to walk around, however he still prefers to bottom shuffle the majority of the time. He will now hold his beaker with encouragement and is beginning to feed himself using his fingers.

His favourite book to share is Buster's Birthday and he gets very excited when Gemma asks 'again?' when the story finishes. He concentrates by studying the pictures taking his time to look for things and when asked he points to the pictures.

Luca loves to listen to music, swaying to songs and smiling as Gemma encourages him to dance.

The progress check would normally be carried out by the child’s key person at the setting where the child spends the greatest amount of time each week.


Seek the views of other practitioners working with the child in other settings.

If the child moves setting during this period the report should usually be produced by the setting where the child has spent most time.
