Parent/Carer Consultation

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Parent/ Carer learning consultation is an information gathering tool that is completed with the parent/ carer prior to the child starting the setting. This tool is used to find out about the child's learning at home, interests, attitudes to learning and their play choices. The process provides the Key Person/ Practitioner with an opportunity to reflect with the parent/Carer on what the child has already achieved with their support and independently. It is essential that parents/carers are advised that the information gathered will be used to build on the child's interest and learning, and to support a smooth transition for the child into the setting.
