Early Years Foundation Studies
As with all Registered Settings, we have to adhere to the Early Years Foundation Stage. This incorporates the care and education of all children aged 0 - 5. It provides a framework for assessing child development from birth right up to and including a child’s reception year at school.
The Early Years Foundation Stage focuses on playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically to support children’s learning across all areas. These areas consist of 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas. These are as follows:- the prime areas consist of personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development.
The specific areas consist of literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
