The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The Centre follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which provides statutory requirements and guidance for practitioners caring for children from birth to five years old.

The framework supports practitioners to provide opportunities and experiences for children to enhance their learning and development while working in partnership with parents and other professionals.

The ethos of the EYFS and our Centre is to promote child initiated play within all age groups and build upon children’s interests in order to support children’s individual learning needs.

The Early Years Foundation Guide for Parents is available below for further information about the EYFS.

Our staff ratio is:

Birth to 2 years: 1 adult to 3 children

2 to 3 years: 1 adult to 4 children

3 to 5 years: 1 adult to 8 children

5 to 14 years: 1 adult to 8 children
