We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which is the statutory framework that sets standards for Early Years providers to follow. The framework aims to ensure that children develop the knowledge and skills required as a foundation to progress through school life.
The EYFS framework places an emphasis on three prime areas which are most essential for childrens healthy development:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development; and
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
The main focus is to ensure that children of Pre-School age have fun in a stimulating environment. Our team draws up a plan for each term focussed around a topic which aims to ensure that the EYFS goals are met in a way that the children will enjoy. We believe that the experience a child has at Pre-School is very important in a childs journey through the education system and so it is our goal to make learning fun!
See A Typical Day for more details.
Child’s Progress Records
Our team use an online tool, Tapestry, to record observations, comments and photos to show progress across the Early Years Foundation Stage. You will receive a login and be able to access your childs journal as you wish. Each week you will receive an email summary of their activity on Tapestry, and prior to each meeting with your childs key worker you will receive a written report on your childs progress. If your child is 2 years old we will also carry out a 2 year progress check as required by the EYFS.
