Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
As with all early year’s settings, we work with a specially tailored curriculm, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), working towards approved learning goals.
Play underpins the delivery of the EYFS (DfE 2014) and it is through play that children learn at their highest level. At Ulceby Pre-School, we provide a wide range of play opportunites, activities and first hand experiences to help all children learn, develop and flourish. Fun and friendship with children and adults is also encouraged and supported.
Through the EYFS we focus on developing the following areas of learning and development with children:
- personal, social and emotional development
- physical development
- communication and language
- understanding of the world
- expressive arts and design
We believe that children learn best through play. Evidence also supports this view and shows it promotes a child’s long-term development. Children also learn well in social groups such as family, friends, in their childcare and local community.
