Progress and achievement
Assessing your child’s learning at ECE level does not involve tests or formal assignments. Instead the service records your child’s progress as a series of photos, learning stories and samples of work. You will see and talk about your child’s progress with the teachers regularly to help them plan your child’s learning. When your child leaves the service you will receive their learning record.
Each service has its own way of sharing your child’s learning with you. Some ECE services have digital cameras and web cams set up so that children can choose what to take pictures of and parents can see what has been happening throughout the day. All ECE services collect examples of children’s work and play (eg in a book or portfolio) and write regular summaries about what each child has been learning.
Keep up-to-date with your child’s learning
Support your child’s learning by regularly:
- talking to your child’s teacher
- looking at your child’s learning stories and other information teachers are collecting.
