In our Nursery we like to follow your child’s interests in what we plan for topics and have discovered that there are usually recurring themes especially seasonal and topical ones e.g. Autumn, Winter and Christmas. We usually start the Autumn term with an ‘All About Me’ topic which helps us to get to know one another well.
Other topics have included: Food, Bears, Nursery Rhymes, Growing, Mini-beasts, Water and Colour.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
