Feedback from parents and carers on our previous EYFS session was extremely positive:

"The session helped me understand what staff are observing and recording about the children's activities and what, when, how and why some of this will be passed on to parents as well as other people/organisations".

"I found it very informative as I hadn't fully appreciated how the various learning throughout the nursery stages feeds into the process of starting school."
