The provision for children's development and learning is guided by the Early Year’s Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children from birth to reception class age.
In our setting we strive to always have a high ratio of staff to children this helps us to:
The Early Year's Foundation Stage (EYFS) is made up of three prime and four specific areas. The four specific areas are:
We encourage children to link sounds & letters. Children are given access to a wide range of materials such as books, poems, and story sacksto ignite their interest.
We provide the children with the opportunities to develop & improve their skills in counting, understanding & numbers, and to describe shapes, spaces & measures.
We guide the children to make sense of their physical world & their community by providing the opportunities for them to explore & observe, to find out about people, places, technology & their environment.
We provide the children with a wide range of media & materials as well as providing opportunities & encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas, and feeling.
Unless of course your child is in receipt of the Free Early Education, either the Free For 2 (FF2 scheme), the 3 + 4 year old funding or the 30hr funding.
Please note that your child’s BIRTH CERTIFICATE must be seen and recorded before the free early education funding can be authorised. The funding entitles your child up too either 15 or 30hrs of free early education.
All fees are payable in advance, weekly or monthly, either by cash or BACS.
The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.
Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. The children have the opportunity - and are encouraged - to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playroom.
