The Early Years Curriculum (EYFS) is a structure of learning, development and care set out by the Government that all early years providers have to follow. There are four principles of the EYFS:
A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. We develop the unqiue child by following their interests on activities, stretching their imagination, being inclusive and focussing on their health and well-being.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships with parents and/or key workers. We focus on respect not only for our peers but grown ups too, partnership with parents, supported learning and the role of teh key person.
The environment plays an important role in supporting and extending children's learning. Our planning is designe dto support every child, and we observe and assess each child to continuously develop them. We provide continuity, and work with multi agencies when appropriate, along with supporting the transition to 'big' school.
Learning and Development
Children learn and develop at different rates and in differnt ways, and we ensure that all areas of learning and development are equally important and interconnected.
Our approach ensures that we meet the need of every child in our care with the aim of improving outcomes. We believe every child has a right to grow up safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving and making a prositive contribution to the world around them
