EYFS

The EYFS is a statutory framework that all child care providers must work with if they care for children from birth to 5 years.

It covers the development of your child and has 6 key areas of learning these are:

- Personal, social and emotional development 

- Communication, language and literacy

- Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy

- Knowledge and Understanding 

 - Physical development

- Creative development

Each child in my care will have a learning journal. This journal will include observations, artwork, and photos of your child 9as their parent you are welcome to view this at any time).

More info on the EYFS will be given should you decide 

STARTER SESSION

2 X 1.5 HOUR settling in sessions are offered before your child starts , free of  charge.
