Hillside Nursery and Forest School

Learning Journeys

Each child belongs to a Key Person group and their Key Person is responsible for keeping a record of their progress in a Learning Journey file.

Staff keep ongoing records of children’s progress and achievements.  Samples of the children’s work, observations and photographs are placed in the Learning Journey and we encourage parents to contribute to this so we can include their in-depth knowledge of their child and their experiences outside of Nursery.  


Staff make observations of the children as they play and use these observations to identify the learning involved and to plan the child's next steps. The information gathered in the Learning Journeys is used on a termly basis to inform our assessments and to support us in planning the next steps in children's learning.  


Parents are welcome to contribute to their child's Learning Journeys by emailing in information to the Office or by speaking to the child's Key Person.
