there are no rules for how many observations you do for each child - it depends on the child, how often he comes and the things you see and hear happening.

some children will produce more paperwork than others :D

I have lots more for my younger mindee than the 3 year old as he seems to be progressing so much faster. there is regularly something new to note. In 4 months i probably have 15 for him , and about 7 for her. I just try to show progression as this is what ( i think) mrs O will want to see - so at 17 months they just seem to progress very quickly! They arent always detailed though - a few words on a post it note in cases.
