We recently introduced “Achievement Chequebooks” and it has proved very popular! Each time your child does something you’re proud of, or something they’ve never done before, just fill out a cheque with their name, what they’ve done and who you are. Next time your child attends Playschool, send the cheque in with them and we’ll read it out during registration so that all the other children can hear about it and congratulate them and then we’ll keep it in their development record. Some examples include: managing the toilet unaided, rides a bike or trike, interacts in new ways with adults or other children, participates in activities outside of Playschool, goes on holiday or takes a trip to the zoo, Paulton’s Park etc.
