The EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)
I work to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) which sets out welfare and developmental goals for children five years and under.
There are three key areas:
The 7 areas of learning and development, around which I will base your child's play and activities.
Assessments that I will carry out to inform both myself and you about your child's progress.
The developmental levels or 'Early Learning Goals' that you can expect your child to achieve by the age of five.
I will use my knowledge and skills to help your child develop across the 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas of the EYFS. These are:
Prime Areas - these are the key areas of learning and development.
Specific Areas - these are the specific areas of learning through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied.
How I will achieve this at It’s A Small World:
I deliver the EYFS through indoor and outdoor play as well as outings basing activities around the children's interests. I also plan a monthly theme such as mini beasts, the seaside, festivals etc. These are then incorporated into our plans during the week.
All children will have a Learning Journal. This journal will include observations, artwork and photographs of your child; you as their parent are welcome to look through this any time. Alongside the learning journal each child will have a daily diary which is kept with the child. I will write in this each session and give you a brief run through of our day
I also ask to meet with parents once a term to discuss your child’s progress in more detail than we do in our daily chats at drop off and pick up times.
