One goes in...
'Dolly has started here without any problems, she has settled in very well and is quite easy going. She needs a little support at circle time and lunch time as she does like to be on the go. She is confident with staff.'
And one comes out...
'Betty is a very confident, capable and independent child. I feel sure she has enjoyed her time here, just as much as we have enjoyed having her. She is now ready to move on to 'big school'. I am sure she will do very well. We will all miss her'.
And while I held the two progress reports in my hand and sobbed pathetically, Tom was strutting around punching the air, with his chest puffed out, thrilled at these particular lines:
'Dolly has helped in the garden, weeding and composting'.
'Betty loves being out in the garden and making sure we do the composting'.
