Early Years Foundation

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a framework for learning and development for children from birth to the end of their first year in school (Reception class).

It is a framework that enables each child to learn through high quality play that is tailored to meet their individual needs

The EYFS is divided into seven areas of Learning and Development. The prime areas:-

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

These areas are focused on heavily in the 0-3 years. They are referred to as “foundations for future learning” as success in the other specific areas is dependent on the child being secure in the Prime Areas.

Specific Areas:-

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

By following the EYFS framework through The Nursery we help each child to develop at their own pace, while having fun, making friends and learning as they play.

We are incredibly fortunate here at The Nursery that our founder, and manager, Jackie Hardie is a nationally and internationally acclaimed Early Years expert, having spent the past 12 years advising on how best childcare facilities can support those within their care.

You can find more in depth information about EYFS at the following website https://www.gov.uk/early-years-foundation-stage or don’t hesitate to ask Jackie anything you’d like to know.

Assessing your child

A large part of our role is continual assessment of your child to ensure that their needs are fully me and they ultimately achieve their full potential. At The Nursery we use an online Learning Diary that records your child’s progress. Every parents is provided with their own password so they can access their own child’s learning diary and also add their own observations and videos from home. This is an amazing programme that allows parents to contribute to their own child’s learning.
