I would spend the first two weeks minimum getting the child settled in and doing lots of obs so you can gauge the childs interests and starting points.

After this you will find it much easier to start your planning and make it sucessful.

Good luck x

Planning,,,, there are lots of threads ere on planning,,,

long,,,this is your continual provisions

MTP,,,,monthly or termly plans eg chinese new yr activities, whats in your area,, drop in's... places you go each week..

STP.. this is the activity sheet used for an activity,,, eg card making or trip to zoo which would inc your risk assessment..

to start i would look at your MTP for the month of Jan...

list each week and what you will do ,,,

am.........toddler group
pm.... park (risk ass)

am.... soft play area (inc risk ass)
pm..... friends for free play,,,STP... card making

pm....libuary... STP Story sacks

the planning for each child is the same but what is the child interested in? what does the child need to help him/her with the craft..activity etc

can you get with other CM's to help you get started?

we are ere if you need help kk
