Effective practice in the EYFS is built on these four guiding principles and this approach ensures that it meets and reflects every child’s right to grow up safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and with economic well-being.
The EYFS sets standards to enable early year’s providers to reflect the rich and personalised experience that many parents give their child at home. Practitioners strive to deliver individualised learning, development and care which enhances the development of children in their care and gives those children the best possible start in life.
At Precious Little Ones Ltd we are committed to ensuring that we fully meet all of the requirements and guidelines set out in the EYFS.
As stated in the EYFS all children will have a key person, this will be their main carer during their time with us. You will get to meet this person on your child’s first visit.
At the nursery we have a SENCO which is the person who will work in partnership with parents, key persons and a range of other agencies to enable children with additional needs to make progress.
Regular observations are carried out on all children, which help us to monitor their progress, identify their interests and give us a starting place for planning. Planning is carried out to ensure that the children’s development is progressed and the children are being stimulated and any specific areas of focus can be identified and necessary steps can be taken.
We recognise that you, as parents are the most knowledgeable about your child. We appreciate the extra insight you can provide. The EYFS is about children as a whole, not just while they are at nursery. Please tell us about things your child has done, and is interested in, so we can include it in the assessment, observation and planning process.
We are open to you at any time to discuss your child, whether this is an informal or a more structured chat. Your child’s Key Person/Room leader is there to discuss your child’s achievements or any concerns you may have. Parents are invited to look at, comment on and contribute to all observations and assessments carried out on their child, and these are available for you to look at, any time.
