POSITITIVE OUTCOMES FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
We follow the Early years foundation stage, (EYFS) statutory framework- the standards that schools and childcare providers must meet for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5. We are guided by the non statutory curriculum guidance for the EYFS, Development Matters which offers a top-level view of how children develop and learn.
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Our curriculum consists of everything we want our children to experience, learn and be able to do and meets the requirements of the educational programmes in the statutory framework for the EYFS. Early language is at the heart of this because language is the foundation of children’s thinking and learning.
We have a fantastic outdoor space for the children explore. Being outside every day is the perfect opportunity for children to understand the world around them, exploring the smells and sounds of nature and basic science. Outdoor play is an important part in children’s development and healthy growth. The NHS recommends that toddlers and pre-school aged children should engage in at least three hours of physical activity per day.
