Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a legal document used in all early years settings for children up to the age of 5. It seeks to ensure we provide quality and consistency so all children make good progress. It puts in place the foundations for partnership working and ensures equality of opportunity and anti – discriminatory practices include and support every child. The overall aim of the EYFS is to focus on a child’s personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development as these are the essential foundations for children’s life, learning and success.

These three prime areas of development are crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building on their capacity to form relationships and thrive. It is believed that with success in the prime areas Literacy, Maths, Understanding of the World and Expressive Art and Design will develop naturally.

Records, Observations & Assessments

Registers and sheets are kept daily, recording attendance and any relevant information e.g. meals eaten, sleeps, accidents, medicine.


Learning journals are kept for children of all age groups.


Each child has a key person, who is responsible for monitoring development through observation and assessment.


Parents can have access to their child’s records at anytime and are encouraged to contribute.


Detailed planning is undertaken by all staff in accordance with Early Years Foundation Stage.


Children are assessed according to their individual needs.
