Observation, Assessment & Planning 

Assessment plays an important part in helping parents, carers and practitioners to recognise children’s progress, understand their needs, and to plan activities and support. Ongoing assessment (also known as formative assessment) is an integral part of the learning and development process. It involves practitioners observing children to understand their level of achievement, interests and learning styles. Reflecting on those observations to then plan learning experiences for each child. Practitioners will respond to their own day-to-day observations about children’s progress and observations that parents and carers share.
