The nursery incorporates the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework to support and develop children’s play and learning. This was implemented in September 2014 and in addition the Welfare requirements are adhered to.
The EYFS covers birth to five years and are divided up through the following:A unique child, Positive relationships, Enabling Environments, and Learning and development.
The curriculum is all the planned and unplanned activities that are organised within the nursery and are based heavily on a child’s development which underpins all seven areas of the curriculum:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Understanding the World
- Physical Development
- Expressive Arts and Design
All children between the ages of 2 and 3 years old, their Keyworker will complete a Progress Check highlighting the progress made in the three prime areas of learning. The Progress Check will be discussed with the parents/ Carer and they will be encouraged to contribute to the report too. A copy of this can be given to the parent/ Carer to share with the health visitor if needed.
This valuable Progress Check also highlights any concerns and if any early intervention is required. When a child starts at the All Saints Day Nursery, the starting points are plotted onto a document called Capturing the Journey. This valuable document records the child’s development and is updated on a regular basis. This document will be passed onto the Child’s Primary School which documents all the progress made. All children have a Learning Journey which is completed by the Keyworker each week on the child’s observations including WOW moments.
