EYFS Nursery Education
Learning journeys and the EYFS Nursery education
The child’s key person is responsible for completing the children’s development files following the prime and specific area of learning.
Three Prime Areas:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional
Four Specific Areas:
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts & Design
The EYFS sets out what we do to make sure that your child learns and develops. It promotes teaching and learning to make sure all children have the skills to get them ready to progress through school and future life. We will make sure your child’s individual needs are met through the EYFS.
Your child will be assigned a Key Worker when they start at Nursery. You will be told their name and their role. The Key Worker is there to make sure that your child’s learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs. They will also support you in giving you ideas on what learning you can do at home with your child.
We cater for the individual needs, interests and stages of development of each child in our care. We will focus on the following three primes areas, which support learning in all other areas.
Assessing your child’s progress, help us to understand their needs and plan their activities. Each child will have two important assessments before the end of the EYFS.
The first assessment will be when they are between two and three years old and the second in the final term of the year in which your child reaches the age of five.
