Early Years Education

The provision for children's development and learning is guided by the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage 2008) Statutory Framework and by the EYFS Practice Guidance.

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. A child's experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in it's own right, and it provides the foundation for the children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. When parents choose to use early years services they want to know that provision will keep their children safe and help them to thrive. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the framework that provides that assurance.

The overarching aim of the EYFS is to help young children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution, and achieving economic well-being.

A Unique Child

Recognising that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self- assured. The commitments are focused around development; inclusion; safety; and health and well-being.

Positive Relationships

This describes how children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. The commitments are focused around respect; partnership with parents; supporting learning; and the role of the key person.

Learning and Development

Recognising that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.

Children are competent learners from birth and develop and learn in a wide variety of ways.The care and education offered by our setting helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.

There are six areas of learning covered by the Early Learning Goals and educational programmes.

  • Personal, Social and Emotional development
  • Communication, Language and Literacy development
  • Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy development
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
  • Physical development
  • Creative development:

For each area the Early Learning Goals state what is expected that children will know, and be able to do by the end of the reception year in their education.

None of these areas of Learning and Development can be delivered in isolation from others. All the areas will be delivered through planned, purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities.
