Your child's development and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

This exciting framework is the basis alongside the Playcare ethos, for your child’s time with us. This framework backs up the longstanding, excellent care that we have provided Playcare children with for many years.

The framework focuses on children’s individuality, the need for strong attachments, working in partnership with parents and a great environment that is suitable for the need and stage of development that each child moves through whilst at nursery.

For prospective parents this framework can seem daunting and confusing, especially if your child is very young. At Playcare this framework just means making sure the very best practice and care is continued for individual needs.

Your child will have a key person who will forge a strong relationship with your child and yourself. Your child’s key person will ensure learning and play is personal to your child making their day fun, exciting and meaningful.

Below are the framework’s four themes, and again, when you visit we can discuss the EYFS in more detail.

A Unique Child

Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

Positive Relationships

Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.

Enabling Environments

The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.

Learning and Development

Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. All areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected.

The areas of Learning and Development are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
