The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standard for learning, development and care for children from birth until the end of the Reception Year.
It aims to develop each child to their full potential by offering a 'principled, play-based approach to learning and development'. Young children learn best through play and our Early Years staff provide your child with appropriate play and learning experiences for their stage of development and help them learn new skills. These activities help underpin the skills needed to work towards the Early Learning Goals at the end of the Reception year.
The areas of learning and development are split into 7 areas;
The 3 prime areas of:
and the 4 specific areas through which the 3 prime areas are strengthened and applied;
Each area is divided into stages of development and are interconnected through the activities and provision provided within our EYFS class.
