Early Years Foundation Stage

In Class 1 we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework which is a statutory framework that sets out the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape the educational programmes in all Early Years settings.  All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.  They are Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Knowledge of the World and Expressive Art and Design.


In Class 1 the children learn and develop in the seven key areas through a variety of teacher led and child initiated activities.
