EYFS

“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to their full potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. When parents choose to use early years services they want to know the provision will keep their children safe and help them to thrive. The Early Years Foundation Stage is the framework that provides that assurance.”

 

Statutory Framework for the EYFS

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the reception year. In our school, most children join Nursery when they are three. The majority of our children join the Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday.

The EYFS is based upon four principles:

  • A Unique Child
  • Positive Relationships
  • Enabling Environments
  • Learning and Development
