At preschool we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to help the children achieve the outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, positive contribution and economic well-being. Each child is assigned a key person. They will be your child’s go to person while they settle in and get to know the setting and other staff. Your key person will record your child’s development and progress while at preschool. They will make observations inline with the EYFS structure and build a Children’s Profile, which you will be given when your child leaves preschool.
Your key person will welcome information from you so that we are working in partnership to support your child.
We use many different tools to support a child’s development while at preschool including the EYFS Ages & Stages, What to Expect When, the Wellcomm speech and language tool and the Individual Assessment of Early Learning and Development (IAELD). More information about these tools can be found on the Documents & Links tab.
Our Half Term Plan outlines the themes and topics that we plan for and look to cover. This is a flexible plan which we would always look to adapt where necessary following the needs and interests of the children.
