Assessment in the Early Years

On-going formative assessment is at the heart of effective Early Years practice.

At Hinguar Nursery we:

  • Observe children as they act and interact in their play,
  • Consider the development of each child through every day and planned activities,
  • Work in partnership with parents to acknowledge  what the child does at home,
  • Use a combination of assessment techniques and effective planning to identify where the child may be in their own developmental pathway.
  • Consider ways to support the child to strengthen and deepen their current learning and development
  • Identify possible areas in which to challenge and extend the child’s current learning and development
