The Planning Board
We follow the EYFS, The Early Years Foundation Stage. This is the statutory framework that sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. All providers are required to use the EYFS to ensure that whatever setting parents choose, they can be confident that their children will receive a quality experience that supports their development and learning.
What is EYFS?
EYFS specifies four overarching principles for the care and education from six months to the end of the reception year at school.
These four themes are:
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 and parents/carer
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all the children in early year’s provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
