The Early Years Foundation Stage
We follow all areas of learning as set out in the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage guide line (2021). The purpose and aim of the EYFS is to provide the best start in life for every child where they are supported to reach their full potential. Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.
Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
Communication and language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
These prime areas are the most essential for your child's healthy development and future learning.
As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
We record each child's learning journey and development at the playgroup/preschool by compiling an individual learning journey for the child, which the parents/carers can view on Tapestry at any time, and add comments and their own photographs of what the children have been doing in their free time.
