Early Year's Foundation Stage
At St George’s, we follow the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS), a government framework for learning, development and care of children from birth to five. Its purpose is to provide all children with the best possible learning opportunities and experiences to help each child reach their full potential. This will ensure your child is ready for school when they leave St George’s Nursery School.
The EYFS is grouped into three prime areas and four specific areas of learning, as follows:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, social and Emotional
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Encouraged to learn
At St George’s each child will have an individual learning journey.The staff team will record and monitor your child’s development and progress in each of the areas. This folder is based in your child’s room and is available to you at all times. We hope that during your time with us you will also contribute to your child’s learning journey as parents. You will also be provided with a formal written report twice yearly on your child’s progress.
