The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years.

Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. Our staff are always on hand to inform parents so that they know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.

Your child’s first five years are divided up into six age bands which overlap. Your child’s key person will use these to plan exciting and challenging activities to enable them to progress in their next steps of their development and to identify areas where support may be required.  This is because every child is different and children do not grow and develop at the same rate. Children learn and develop through playing, exploring, being active, creative and being asked questions to help their thinking, this is something our staff team are trained to do.

As you know, being a parent is very special and amazing as you watch your child grow up. It can also have challenges which is why your child’s key person is on hand to develop a good relationship with you and your child so that you can share milestones, any concerns you may have and learning opportunities between home and nursery. This will strengthen the partnership between nursery and home to be able to continually provide opportunities for your child’s development.
