EYFS – Early Years Foundation Stage
We truly believe that the Early Years is called the foundation stage for a reason. It builds the solid foundations for a child’s emotional, social and intellectual development, as well as preparing each child for their future learning and successes throughout their school journey and beyond.
We understand that young children develop many skills through the power of play and therefore place ‘learning through play’ at the forefront of all that we do. Through open-ended exploration and collaborative learning, the children can learn essential skills such as problem solving, risk taking, sharing and much more.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS 2016), the statutory framework. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years’ providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.
