The core principals of the Early Years Foundation Stage are:
By following the EYFS, we ensure that your child will be learning new skills and gaining knowledge and independence.
The primary areas of development for children are:
As children develop, there are four more specific areas for development:
We plan your child’s learning and activities to ensure their development in these areas. At this age, children learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking. Each child has unique needs, so we work with parents to make sure that activities are suited to their child.
You can find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS through this link:
What the parents say
Greyfriars nursery is great. My child is so excited to get there every morning. I would recommend the nursery to family and friends.
I have found everyone to be very supportive, professional and friendly. On my child’s first day I was clearly upset. The staff recognised this and very kind. They didn’t make a fuss but called very soon afterwards to say that my son was settling well and stopped crying.
Very good leadership. A great team.
My son has been attending the nursery from age two for almost one and a half years now. He loves going to nursery daily. The key worker has made sure my son is looked after constantly and that he does his work independently. The nursery is a second home for him.
Very friendly, experts in child development and a team that I trust to care for my child. Also everyone must be very patient!!!
My child seems to be settling well. Overall, she seems well looked after and she is making good progress with her speech. Thank you!
