The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) was introduced into our nurseries in September 2008. The aim is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn through high quality play experiences.
The EYFS is made up of a Statutory Framework for the Early Years which sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five and a Practice Guidance document that supports practitioners in identifying children’s progress and supports them to deliver high quality learning experiences for all babies and children.
Through careful observations and play plans we can assess children’s individual needs and offer a program that is dynamic, individual, varied and well balanced.
At Smarties we have a ‘Learning journey’ which supports communication with parents about their child and child’s development.
