2 Children in a family day care and in a nursery Children in a family day care and in a nursery You are invited to a meeting regarding your child s well-being, learning and development. The meeting is optional and will typically last minutes. The purpose is to discuss what is most important to both parents and staff and the basis for the conversation will be that some things are the same for all children and some things are different. The meeting will end in a decision regarding who will be doing what things to support the child in the best way possible. Themes of the meeting The meeting will revolve around the following six themes: social abilities language development cultural ways of expression and values versatile personal development body and movement nature and natural phenomena A theme will contain three pedagogical learning goals which describe what the staff is working on achieving in their pedagogical approach. For every learning goal, there are indicators of where the child is in its development. The indicators are seen in bodily expressions, actions and linguistic expressions. Both you and the staff can naturally include other indicators. You will be evaluating the child s well-being, learning and development towards the learning goals by applying one of the following four phases: not means that the child cannot master the learning goal or active support and from another person. The child exhibits a very limited active interest and leaves the initiative to another or gives up because it is unable. from another person means that the child is critically dependent on somebody s. This could be another child or an adult guiding, holding, supporting, inspiring or actively helping. means that the child by its efforts is way to reach the learning goal.
