Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage. 

Your teacher is Mrs Tracey along with teaching assistants Mrs Taplin, Miss Sykes, Mrs Leech and Modern Apprentice Miss Porter.

We are a mixed class of reception and nursery children.  We have lots of fun everyday whilst learning.  We place a great importance on outdoor learning and spend a lot of time outside in our wonderful grounds. We enjoy our forest area, building site, outdoor cabin and of course our brand new mud kitchen.  Friday is one of our favourite days when our café is open for the afternoon.

What is EYFS?

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
