Early Years Foundation Stage
Children in the Foundation Stage follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
This is from birth to five, so if your child has been at pre-school you will be familiar with it.
The EYFS ensures that children learn new skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development
There are 3 prime areas which are:
Communication and Language
Personal, social and emotional development
The prime areas help children to develop skills in4 specific areas.
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
The 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The teachers and teaching assistants make sure the activities are suited to each child’s needs. Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and out. We sustain high standards of achievement through careful planning, continuous assessment and tracking of children’s learning. This ongoing process enables us to build a picture of all aspects of each child's development.
