Just been informed by my network coordinator that i need to show weekly and long term planning (coz i have nothing else to do with my time) how do you all set this out, anyone got any templates. I have piles of paper here now, wish i had never joined a network. i even have to do a pet policy for the rabbit. might do one for house flies as well, just to cover myself
Hi, I am on a network, I assume that you are accredited and offering Early Years Education if you are having to provide proof of planning?
This would have been coverd during the accreditation processs and your co ordinator should have examples of planning to share with you, so you can make a format that works best for you
I find under5's.com really useful for ideas and planning help.
It is really easy when you have done it all, I just plan for the year, broken down into half terms, one theme for each half term, and one area to observe on a child each week means you can cover the 6 areas of learning over a half term.
You do not need to do anymore than that, I think accredited childminders are trying to do too much, we are not nurseries!
My planning etc has got simpler and simpler over the last 2 years and had the bare minimum to show Ofsted and I got O/S!
