Where learning springs to life

Early Years Foundation Stage

In our EYFS setting, we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which sets out the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five.

Standards are set to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. Learning through play is a vital part of your child’s learning in Early Years.
Teacher’s plan to support your child’s learning  through a good balance of adult led and child initiated learning activities both indoors and outdoors.



There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.


Three areas are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting

children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving.

These are the prime areas:

• Communication and language

• Physical development

• Personal, social and emotional development


Providers must also support children in four specific areas, through which the

three prime areas are strengthened and applied.

The specific areas are:

• Literacy

• Mathematics

• Understanding the world

• Expressive arts and design
