EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE
We are guided by the EYSF and our provision reflects the four over arching principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Stage (DfE 2014)
A UNIQUE CHILD
Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and carers.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision including children with special educational needs and disabilities
