The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage using this as the underpinning curriculum to ensure all children are developing and reaching milestones that are appropriate for their ages and stages of development. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development, and care of your child from birth to 5 years old.
The EYFS seeks to provide quality and consistency in all early years settings so that every child makes good progress. This sets a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly.
Your child will be taught through a variety of planned activities, using the Early Years Foundation Stage as a reference, that are both adult and child led covering all areas of the EYFS. However, this based on your child’s next steps.
You will receive settling in sessions to help your child become familiar with the other children and staff.
