The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum
The statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) sets the standards for learning, development and the care for children from birth to five years old. The EYFS principles are grouped into four themes :
- A Unique Child – recognising that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
- Positive Relationships – children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or key workers
- Enabling Environments – that the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning
- Learning and Development – recognising that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
In the EYFS the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which is a continuation of learning experiences from Pre-Nursery through Foundation 1 to Foundation 2. We plan for quality learning experiences that enable the children to learn through first hand experiences, play and practical activities.
