Each child in our care has their own learning journal and a key worker who is responsible for recording the development of each child; including next steps and achievements. Our learning journals are accessed online - ensuring flexibility of access for our families. Each family has their own log in, accessed through their emails, allowing you to look through your child's file when it is convenient for you. Your child's learning journal will contain observations of learning and photographs of your child's learning journey; and gives you the opportunity to add your own, or your child's comments. Kids Ahoy believe communication between home and nursery is extremely important and have an open door policy. You can speak to management, your child's key worker or a member of staff at any time. Kids Ahoy host two parent consultation times throughout the year, allowing you a chance to sit with your child's key worker to discuss their learning journey and their time at nursery.

The nursery has many facilities to support your child's sleep routine. Your child will have their own care plan which will support staff with routines from home and preferred method of sleeping. It is important to note that staff will always try their best to ensure home routines are followed, wherever possible,  adopting a home away from home philosophy. However, nursery is a very different environment to home and it can take children a while to adapt to their new surroundings and routine, sometimes sleep patterns can be effected during this period. Visual checks on all sleeping children are carried out and recorded by staff.
