Do any of you set up a "plan" for development of littlies - ie. 6 months onwards?

I have that baby starting in 2 weeks time (hooray!) and I was wondering what ya'll do for little ones?

I haven't done but believe this will be required when the new Foundation framework comes in??? The 2 babies I have currently started at 7 weeks old and 8 weeks old and I would have thought that was a bit young imo but maybe not?

Good luck and well done on the new baby

I just use WOW moments & next steps

I record them on a sheet & combined with photos I have been told OFSTED will accept this

So my 15mo stands up unsupported for a few seconds I record it & put "more toys on the table to encourage reaching" & maybe take a picture

That sounds good to me, I have a birth to 3 matters framework development sheet that I plan to use (Ofsted were happy with at inspection) but I was wondering if there was anything more in depth that people do. Like a learning plan, etc...?

I just plan on using post it notes etc. as my old mentor said this was fine - she was selected by Ofsted for a chat to see how things could work.
