Tuning into each child’s needs

When it comes to monitoring your child and assessing their development, it’s a cyclical process.


We observe your child; their play, their interests, their needs and their schemas, and their Key Person dynamically and formally plans (seeds) the environment accordingly. In this way, children take a lead on their development. Learning through their play at a pace which suits them.

Our Seeding is an effective system unique to Young Friends which informs how we set up the areas and plan experiences to address all children’s interests and skills, using our curriculum as a framework.


Your child’s progress

We assess your child’s progress each month, and this assessment tells us how they are doing, whether further support is needed and provides the basis for addressing next steps so they can truly flourish in their development
