We follow Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum to plan and organise our environment and practice to ensure that every child receives an enjoyable and challenging, learning experience which is tailored to meet their individual needs and interests. We encourage the children to mix freely and provide them with opportunities to support and promote their overall development in a safe, stimulating and caring atmosphere.
There are seven main areas of learning within the EYFS. Children should develop the three prime areas first. These are:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As your children grow, the prime areas will help them develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
Understanding of the World
Expressive Arts and Design
We use learning journeys for each child to track their progress while they are with us. Along with parents’ contributions, it is a lovely record of your child’s early years, which includes; photographs, observations and their own work.
Every child has a designated Key Person who acknowledges that each child must be treated as a unique individual. It is the role of the key person to guide the child on their learning journey. We actively encourage parents to contribute to their child’s learning journey.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
We provide an environment in which all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are supported to reach their full potential.
Please see our SEND Local Agreement for more detail.
