We find out about children by talking with parents, watching them and joining in with their play. We plan activities to meet their interests and to help them learn new things. We provide equipment to support their play. Some of the time we encourage children to join in activities that adults lead, other times we join in with and extend play and activities that they have chosen themselves
Different activities and equipment are available in each room and children are encouraged to move between rooms and the garden.
The curriculum we use is called the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) gives people who work with young children guidance on how we need to:
- Treat each child as an individual who has the right and ability to achieve.
- Make good relationships with the child and everybody who is important to them
- Make sure that the environment is safe and stimulating and that it provides activities suited to each child.
- Help children to learn through play, being physically active and thinking creatively.
