‘Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfill their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.’
The EYFS builds on significant developments in early years curriculum and standards. It is a statutory framework that sets out the legal requirements relating to learning and development and child welfare. The overarching aim of the Early Years Foundation Stage is to help young children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes of:
|Enjoying and Achieving|
|Making a Positive contributions|
|Achieving economic well-being|
At Little Wonders, children are helped to achieve the purpose set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage, by providing a well planned and resourced curriculum, a qualified, experienced and highly motivated team of practitioners and by giving children the opportunity to succeed in an atmosphere where they feel cared for and valued.
The nursery believes that children are individuals and must be treated as such from the moment they join the nursery. They must acquire skills and attitudes to provide them with a solid foundation for learning. They must be given the opportunities to progress at their own unique pace, within a supported and ‘safe’ environment.
The nursery also recognizes the need to work with ‘parents as partners’. The home influence remains important throughout their school years and it is crucial to build and work together to promote children’s development. This partnership helps to make school learning part of children’s lives rather than something separate and artificial.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, covers children from birth to five years of age.
The Early Years Foundation Stage covers the six areas of learning:
|Personal, Social and Emotional Development|
|Communication, Language and Literacy|
|Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy|
|Knowledge and Understanding of the World|
Each area of learning has ‘early learning goals’, which establish expectations for most children to reach. By the end of the Foundation Stage some children will have exceeded the goals.
Little Wonders has large, bright classrooms, and spacious indoor and outdoor play areas, all complete with carefully chosen, “age & stage” appropriate equipment and toys
The nursery provides a comprehensive fun packed day for the children, with lesson plans available for parents perusal and a healthy and nutritious weekly menu for children.
Facilities are organized by age group and so the rooms, equipment, activities, rest and supervision are tailored to the needs of the individual age group.
Security is a priority, and as such, school premises, procedures, and policies are all designed to ensure peace of mind for parents. The school offers a CCTV web camera system online so parents can keep an eye on their children.
The nursery also has on board an early years professional who is also a play therapist.
