Foundation Stage

Welcome to our Foundation Stage Unit. 
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) looks to ensure that all early years children are provided with the highest quality early learning experience. The EYFS is there to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards for learning, development and care for 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.
Development Matters in the EYFS
This is the framework that we base our curriculum around and it supports us to assess learning. It has been updated and amended in 2021.
Please follow the link below to read the Development Matters framework:
Prime areas:
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
Specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Another key ingredient to a good EYFS curriculum is the recognition of the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
Curriculum newsletters are sent home to parents every half term. These provide parents with key dates, details of what your child will be learning within the half termly topics and ways to support your child at home. You can find these newsletters on the EYFS class page.
