EYFS in Nursery & Reception
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5. This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs. In Nursery and Reception we work closely with parents to ensure children feel safe, secure and continue developing a love of learning.
Children in Nursery and Reception follow a broad theme each term which is planned in response to individual needs and interests.
Autumn – Ourselves
Spring – Our community
Summer – Our world
Each child in our Nursery or Reception has their own ‘Learning Journey’ folder. In this we record observations and information about their learning and progress. We encourage parents to contribute to these. There are regular planned opportunities for you to look at your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ and talk to your child’s key worker but please feel free to ask at any time if you would like to see your child’s folder. Staff use Early Years Outcomes to track progress.
