The Early Years Foundation Stage

Teaching in the Nursery and Reception classrooms is based upon the Early Years Outcomes curriculum. The curriculum programme provides effective education for children aged 3 - 5 years, and is supported by well-informed staff who understand the rapid development of an Early Years child. It requires Early Years practitioners to review children’s progress and share a summary with parents at two points:

  • Between the ages of 24 and 36 months via the progress check; and
  • At the end of reception via the EYFS profile

Structured play and careful monitoring are the foundation stones of this stage of education.  Click here to download the EYFS Parents Guide.
