Preparing children to move onto all areas of the National Curriculum at the end of their Foundation Stage year.
The government combined the ‘Birth to Three Matters Framework’, ‘Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage’ and the ‘National Standards for Under 8s Day Care and Childminding’. These frameworks have been replaced by a statutory (legal) framework called ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ (EYFS). All early years settings and Foundation Stage classes have been using this framework since September 2008, when it became a statutory requirement.
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is based around four themes; each theme is linked to an important principle:
- 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 key person.
- Enabling Environment
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 and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and interconnected.
We have a high level of qualified staff and adult support to help your child get the best out of their learning opportunity.
We also have bank staff and student placements. All our staff are CRB Police checked with full references available.
We offer a hot lunch for children who attend nursery all day (9am – 6pm) or for children who attend the afternoon session.
The meals are provided by Chartwells who supply healthy, nutritious meals on a daily basis which are then prepared and cooked by Manor Primary School. To view their menu visit Chartwells website or for more information and prices please contact us.
We have a parent rota on the notice board and encourage all parents or carers to take part. By doing so, you can see what happens during a session at the nursery.
Your child will really enjoy introducing you to their friends and showing you what they can do. If you are unable to take part, but would still like to help, we would appreciate the donation of an item from our donation list (also on the notice board). This helps us to keep costs down.
