Early Years Foundation Stage
Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them.
Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships
and enabling environments.
There are four themes of the EYFS that underpin all the guidance,they are:
Our curriculum is The Early Years Foundation Stage. These documents are produced by the Department for Education. The curriculum runs from birth to 5 years.
Each child is valued for their own contributions. We embrace all cultures and beliefs and encourage children to share their news, thoughts and ideas.
Children are encouraged to socialise with peers and adults and build strong bonds. We operate a key person system to encourage relationships betwen practitioners, children and their families.
Children benefit from a choice of environments including free flow access to the outside, well resourced upstairs classrooms and large main playroom.
