EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a distinct learning phase for children of 0 to 5 years and is the first part of the National Curriculum. It has early Learning goals.

At the fountain children centre, we believe that children learn through play and we will provide a broad range of fun, challenging and stimulating activities both indoors and outdoors that will promote the child’s overall development.

We use on going observations to monitor children’s progress and we keep records of development and documentation of their work i.e. contact book, learning journey folder and leavers book. We believe observations and assessment is a triangular process and our observations are regularly shared with parents/carers via the contact book and home observation forms. During room meetings, staff members discuss observations and share knowledge of individual children’s needs and progress.
