Observations of all children in my care take place to enable me to contribute to each child's development in a way suitable to the individuals current stage of development.

All the observations will be put in a folder (All about me) along with pictures of the child and any art work the child has done.

The contents of the folder will be regularly shared with parents , they will be able if they wish to make any written comments about their child's development or any change to their child's daily routine.

When the child leaves my setting they will be able to take their folder with them.
