First Steps to Learning

At McCready Family Centre we understand that children are unique individuals and active participants in all that happens around them, with particular needs, interests, preferences and capabilities. Children’s views and attitudes are shaped from a very early age and being part of a family and community helps to determine individual values and beliefs.

Assessment reflects an understanding of what is happening to children as they develop.

The purpose of assessment at McCready Family Centre is to:-

  • Recognise each child’s achievements
  • Obtain information for possible lines of development
  • Collate information for reporting to parents, colleagues and other professionals such as Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists and Next Steps nursery.

The best way of getting to know your child is by using information only you can give to us.

  • Information from the home visit – GIRFEC Framework and developmental tracker will give a starting point for planning
  • Possible lines of development will be decided by parents and key workers – taking into consideration individual needs, interests and stage of development
  • Learning and development will be implemented through planned purposeful play and through a mix of adult led and child initiated experiences
  • Children’s Learning Journals will reflect both learning and events, from home, centre and the local community.
