The time in your child’s life between the age of birth and 5 is called the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS). This is a very important stage of your child’s development where their experiences should be fun, stimulating, exciting and active.
Our practitioners are aware of the importance of a stimulating environment to enable children to develop good social skills and an appreciation for all cultures. It is through play that the babies and young children learn to grow and develop.
Staff plan a rice and purposeful learning environment that is designed to meet each child’s needs and interests. They use the highest-quality resources that stimulate children’s curiosity and fascination. Ofsted Inspection Report 2016
We recognise that children progress differently when it comes to learning and we allow them to take their own lead in our free play enabled settings. The EYFS recognises that every child is unique with an individual path to learning and a need for the right environment combined with close relationships.
Each child is allocated a Key Worker, who takes care of their individual needs. Parents are free to communicate with their child’s Key Worker on a regular basis to keep them up to date with their child’s development and progress.

For more information on the EYFS, please ask your child’s Key Worker or the manager.
Each child has a Learning Journey that is in electronic format. This follows their development through their time with us. Parents are welcome to view and contribute to the learning journeys at any time, and can do so via the App.
Staff establish superb partnership working with parents and other professionals, to provide children with consistency in their care and learning. Parents praise staff for providing exceptional communication. Ofsted Inspection Report 2016
