Apologies – it looks like our site was compromised and a “hacker” was able to post an unsavoury article that some of you may have seen. It has been removed, backups have been restored and Malware checks completed to make sure it does not happen again.
Today there is too much tech and not enough talking to our little ones, parents today find themselves more pressed for time than any other generation —and are constantly connected. Parents often find it difficult to separate from their hand-held devices. Checking your phone has become both habit and necessity to manage work and family life. But, all this multitasking could also hurt your young child’s ability to learn.
We are very pleased to announce our new online learning journeys! After so much positive feedback from other childcare settings, we have decided to create individual ‘learning journeys’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’. By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your children’s observations, photographs and even video from their time at Little Acorns.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. For our staff in Little Acorns working in the early years – the EYFS outlines what they need to do to support your child.
