Hi. I have been told that since the new EYFS that you no longer need to do learning journals. Has anyone else heard this.Thankyou ?????

It has never been a requirement to do a file called a 'learning journey' for every Eyfs aged child!! You won't even find it mentioned in the Eyfs.

What is a requirement is to write observations, assessments, individual planning, note children's learning characteristics, work closely with parents and other settings and use Development Matters to prove children are making good progress etc.

most childminders choose to do this by putting together a file... and calling the file the industry standard name ... 'learning journey'.

I hope this clarifies :D
