All staff have a positive approach to the children’s learning which is observed, photographed and recorded in the child’s personal learning journal.
The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) outlines the learning and development, assessment, safeguarding and welfare requirements we strive to meet to ensure children develop well and are kept safe and healthy.
There are seven areas of learning and development divided into three prime areas
· Communication and Language
· Physical Development
· Personal, Social & Emotional Development
And four specific areas
· Understanding of the world
· Expressive Arts & Design
Each child demonstrates the Characteristics of Effective Learning
· Playing and Exploring
· Active Learning
· Creative and Thinking Critically
The whole framework is underpinned by four guiding principles:
UNIQUE CHILD + POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS + ENABLING ENVIROMENTS = LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
