Supporting Their Learning

Kids 4 Us in Madeley, Telford support children’s learning and development.

During the session practitioners observe all children to help them to assess the progress they are making and to plan challenging and enjoyable activities to support children in all areas of their learning and development.

All staff and key persons work in partnership with parents to support all children and families at Kids 4 Us. If you have any concerns about your child’s learning and development please contact a member of the team so that we can work together to support your child.


What Do We Mean By:

Key Person
All children up to the age of 5 years have a Key Person. A Key Person has a special responsibility for working with a small number of children, this is the person who:

  • Is your main point of contact within the setting
  • Helps your child to become settled, happy and safe
  • Is responsible for your child’s care, development and learning
  • Takes a careful note of your child’s progress, sharing this with you and giving you ideas as to how to help your child at home
  • Building relationships with their parents

Adult-Led
Small group or focus group times are an adult led activity to encourage and support a particular aspect of learning based on the children’s interests and stages of development. During this the adult may introduce a particular skill or idea.

Child Initiated
During child initiated play children chose from a variety of resources and decide what to do with them. Activities grow from children’s personal interests as they are encouraged to explore and investigate using all their senses. Adults support children’s independence and tune in to children’s thinking.

Observations
During the session practitioners observe all children to help them to asses the progress they are making and to plan challenging and enjoyable activities to support children in all areas of their learning and development.

Profiles
Each child has an individual development profile which documents and celebrates their achievements throughout their time at Kids 4 Us. Children and parents are encouraged to look at and contribute to the profiles at any time.
