Choose to complete as a full tracker booklet or as individual sections within the curriculum areas.

Lists CfE Benchmarks for each curriculum area which may be highlighted to mark skills or understanding that a child has displayed. It should be noted however that benchmarks should not be used as a tick list for assessment purposes but are useful to gather an overall impression of development progress in each area.

The tracker may be printed out and completed by hand or completed digitally using a computer, tablet or smart phone.

Mark each section with a red, amber or green spot to indicate whether a child is emerging, developing or secure in each outcome and, if you wish, add further evidence of development progress and achievements. e.g. link to observation reports or contact diary entries.

Also includes Front Cover, Review Summary Sheets, Examples and User Guide!

Cheryl, thank you so much for this wonderful pack. I find that it is really difficult for Scottish Childminders to find decent CfE resources. One of the many reasons why I love MKs is that it evolves and keeps up to date. I think the gold membership is worth every penny.

Thank you very much for your review Maria. I am very pleased to hear that you find MindingKids resources useful and good value. We have plans to create and enhance more learning and development resources in the new year so keep a look out for these. Thanks again for your support!
