This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

Early Years Foundation Stage Framework

The framework has been revised again with changes to the statutory guidance coming in to effect in September 2014 and it’s called Development Matters ~ click on the link for further detail.

Using this document, the teachers plan to meet the needs of all the children in their care. A key aspect is continuous provision which takes into account the needs, wants and interests of the children. The activities and experiences are then tailored to the children to encourage exploration – this could be in any of the areas in the provision – or the outside learning environment.
