The Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage framework, within which we operate, recognises children as individuals and competent learners. The EYFS sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well, and are kept healthy and safe.

The four guiding principles of the EYFS which shape our practice are:

  • Every child is a UNIQUE CHILD
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS
  • Children learn and develop well in ENABLING ENVIRONMENTS
  • Children LEARN & DEVELOP in different ways and at different rates
