2 Year Old Progress Check

What is the 2 Year Old Progress Check?

When a child is aged between two and three, practitioners must review their progress and provide parents and/or carers with a short written summary of their child's development in the three prime areas:

  1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
  2. Physical Development;
  3. Communication and Language

This progress check provides examples of your childs strength, how information is provided to parents/carers, and ideas for how the progress checks will be approached. 

The purpose of the 2 year old progress check is to identify development needs; this will enable additional support to be put in place.

Providers MUST have the consent of parents and/or carers to share information directly with other professionals, if they consider this would be helpful.

If a child moves settings between the ages of two and three, it is expected that the progress check would usually be undertaken by the setting where the child has spent the most time.
