Pre School Day Nursery Contact EARLY YEARS  FOUNDATION STAGE

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The early years foundation stage was introduced into our children's nurseries in September 2008 And was revised in 1012.


The legal Framework is called the EYFS (early years foundation stage 2012), this outlines the h&S the procedures and legal processes regard to care and education, however the curriculum its self that we use as a guild to educate the children is called Early years outcomes 2013


A Practice Guidance document supports staff in assessing a child's progress and helps them to provide the best learning experience for all babies and children.

The aim is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn through high quality play experiences. For additional government information, please click on the external link to the EYFS. (This will open in a new page on your browser)


Play is vital for children. It helps them to understand the world around them and to develop socially and emotionally.it is through play that our children learn, develop at their own pace and have fun with adults who understand, support and care about them.


We want the children we care for to feel secure, not pushed or pressured, and to have the confidence to deal with whatever life brings.


On Monday 3rd September 2012, the EYFS was revised to focus more on the things that matter most, and to make it easier and clearer to use. There is now also a greater emphasis on the role parents and carers have in helping children develop.


The Government states that parents must receive written progress reports for their child when they reach the age of two and again at five. At Stepping Stones, a key person will give you a progress report every 10 to 12 weeks in your child's Incredible Stepping Stones Learning Journal, because we know just how important it is for there to be regular, written feedback to let you know how your child is getting on.


Key Person

The Key Person approach gives every child the reassurance to feel secure and cared for, helping them to become familiar with the nursery environment and to feel confident and safe within it.

We recognise every child's individuality, efforts and achievements and believe that relationships between adults and children are crucial for the child's happiness and security. The Key Person meets the needs of each child in their care and responds sensitively to their feelings, ideas and behaviour.

The Key Person will offer security, reassurance and continuity, and they will usually be the one to feed, change and soothe your child.

They are in the best position to understand your child's individual needs and to share information with you about your child's experiences in nursery.

The Key Person will help each of their children to develop relationships with other members of staff and children. They will observe them in their play so that they can plan future opportunities and experiences that best meet their needs and interests


Children learn individually and with others through play. We offer our children a play-based curriculum which meets all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.


It supports all aspects of their learning and development. It encourages their in-built curiosity and desire to make sense of the world around them and helps them to discover that learning is interesting and fun. This is vitally important if children are going to remain keen learners for the rest of their lives.

Play in a secure environment with effective adult support allows the children to explore, investigate and enjoy the learning experience. We help them to practice and develop ideas, concepts and skills in a unique and non-threatening way, without fear of failure.

We deliver the early year's (EYFS) curriculum in a number of ways, through:


Role Play & imaginable opportunities
