The Early Years Foundation Stage

Designed to teach and educate your child through fun and engaging activities, and to learn through their play with the support of our key person approach and working closely with parents, gives the best possible to start to a children’s life.

The Early Years Foundation Stage, consists of a statutory framework for the Early Years which sets the standards for learning development and care for children from birth to five years. The practice guidance documents support staff in assessing a child’s progress and helps them to provide the best learning experiences for all babies and children.

The Aim

The aim of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYSF) is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn through high quality play experiences and that they will be supported through this journey by their relationship with their key person.

Key person system

The key person will plan key experiences based on your child’s interests and stage of development and will observe and monitor your child. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and we welcome parental contributions to the learning that takes place
