How will my son’s learning be recorded?

Nursery staff document evidence of learning in a physical learning journal. Parents have multiple opportunities during the year to visit the Nursery and review their son’s learning journey. At the end of the year, boys are able to take their learning journey home, providing a wonderful record of their progress and achievements over the year.
