Reaching new horizons



Nursery JH

Welcome to Nursery!

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework is a government document that all schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers in England must follow. It sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old. The standards ensure your child will learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.


What Will My Child Be Learning?

The EYFS framework outlines seven areas of learning and development and educational programmes. There are three prime areas of learning, which are particularly important for your child’s development and future learning:


Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development.


There are four specific areas of learning, through which the prime areas are strengthened and applied:

Literacy, Maths, Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design.


Early years practitioners also use your child’s needs and interests to plan challenging and enjoyable activities and experiences. How Will My Child Be Learning? The EYFS framework identifies the essential role of play in your child’s development. It is through both child-led play and play guided by an adult that your child will develop confidence and relationships with others. Through play, EYFS practitioners will help your child to extend their vocabulary and develop their communication skills. The EYFS framework identifies three characteristics of effective teaching and learning:


Playing and exploring, Active learning and Creating and thinking critically.


A greater focus on teaching specific skills will occur as your child progresses through their reception year, which will help them to prepare for year one.
