Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the Governments Statutory Framework which promotes the learning and development of children from birth to 5 years of age. 

The extensive knowledge and expertise of the Pre-School Centre staff alongside the rich environment provided, supports the learning and development of each individual child by providing a wide range of teaching and learning opportunities, activities and resources.

Through their play your child will be learning new skills, acquiring knowledge and developing their understanding in the 7 areas of learning and development identified in the EYFS. These areas help to build the foundations for your child to achieve.  

The Centre holds a number of EYFS parent workshops throughout the year where you are invited to sample the joy and simplicity of learning through play.

You will have opportunities to sample the activities and to speak to the team directly, identifying exactly how and what learning is achieved through simple activities such as mark making, playing with building blocks and looking at family photos.
