As an early years provision, we are required to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is a structure of learning, development and care for children from birth to 5 years of age. It enables all children to learn through a range of activities and play. The EYFS is organised into prime and specific areas. Prime areas are fundamental, work together and move through, to support development in all other areas.
Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to participate successfully in society.
The seven areas of the EYFS are:-
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding The World
Expressive Arts and Design
