Starting points can be added by both parents and the childcare setting, ideally when a child starts at a new setting the parents will be asked to mark off all early years outcomes within the EYFS that they feel their child has achieved, these will be checked by the childcare setting then approved and added to the child's progress section.
Additional starting points can be added to the system at any time.
Not available on the iPhone & Android App.
Available on the iPad & Android Tablet App.
Available on a PC / Laptop / Mac Web Browser.
Parents may be asked to set their child's starting points / baseline.
When parent's starting poitns are added to the system they add achievement dates to multiple Early Years Outcomes at once.
Parent added starting points will appear in the child's progress section as Parent added starting points.
