The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a legal framework which provides a set of requirements that we must adhere to. This helps us to ensure that all children who attend our pre school are safe and healthy, and that they are supported to learn and develop to their full potential.
We are inspected and regulated by Ofsted on the quality of our childcare provision against the requirements of the EYFS. You can view the EYFS Satutory Framework at EYFS Statutory Framework and our Ofsted report at Woodley Pre-School Report.
There are seven areas of learning and development within the EYFS. These areas form the basis of the activities we provide for your child, which together with knowledge of their unique interests and needs, enable us to plan for their progress.
Prime areas of learning and development:
Specific areas of learning and development:
These areas are connected, with learning and development in each area contributing towards that of the others. Building confidence in the prime areas of learning and development is particularly important for children, as it enables them to progress well in the specific areas of learning and development. As we support your child towards achieving the early learning goals for each of these areas of learning, we aim to tailor the opportunities we provide to meet their personal learning and development needs.
