EYFS - Children Joining Reception

Once they are 4, children are welcome to join our Holiday Club in the summer holiday before they start school.

This can be an excellent introduction to school, and several new children join us every summer before they start school.

It is often the parents who are more anxious than the children!

Children who are entering or leaving the Reception Year are part of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Key Worker

Each child in the EYFS will be allocated a key worker.

During the summer holidays the key worker is allocated on a daily basis. We try to maintain consistency with the daily keyworker, however, it is dependent on which team members are working in the club on the day.

You will be advised in the morning who your child's keyworker is, and your child will be introduced to them.







Feedback & Communication

The key worker and club supervisor will be happy to provide feedback to you at the end of the session. If there is a problem, we will always call you, however, if you are feeling anxious or just want to check how your child is getting on, you are always welcome to contact the club mobile. You can find the number on our contact us page.

The majority of children settle into the club really well, but occasionally some new children can find it hard. If you have any comments, or there is something that your child does not like about the club, please speak to the supervisor as they will be happy to work with you and your child to ensure they are happy in the club.

EYFS in Practice

The key worker will be your child's main contact in the club. They will ensure they settle into the club well, and know where the toilets, playground etc are, and ensure they understand the club routine, help them to feel included in all aspects of the club and support them in developing friendships.

They will monitor your child's progress and interests through observations and photos. This information will be recorded in an 'All About Me' book.

We are required by Ofsted to monitor your child's progress, most parents are very happy for this to happen. If you do not wish your child to be part of this programme, please let us know in Ball in hoopwriting.

Some children and key workers develop a natural bond, and if your child developed an affinity with a particular key worker, we will endeavour to put them together.
