With the introduction of the new Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in September 2008, Ofsted’s inspection criteria will also change. There will be a strong emphasis on the importance of continuous improvement, development planning and target setting.
Jil and I already evaluate the business each year and share our views with parents in an annual Operational Plan. To date, the information has been almost entirely based on our perspective alone and this is something we want to change to include feedback and views from parents/carers, staff and children!
Within the next week, I will be sending home a copy of a simple evaluation form that asks you to grade our care and support, our environment, our staff and our management and leadership on a scale of 1 – 6. Space has been left for comments, feel free to add additional sheets of paper if there is more information or feedback that you would like to share.
We are very grateful for feedback, it helps us to create the setting that you want for your children and an environment that your children truly enjoy.
