How we support your child's Learning and Development

The EYFS is a legal framework which provides a set of requirements that we adhere as follows;

  • The learning and development requirements shape the activities and experiences we provide for your child.


  • The assessment requirements detail how we will monitor and plan for your child’s progress.
  • The safeguarding and welfare requirements are steps we follow to ensure your child is kept safe and has their welfare promoted.



Our Policies and Procedures;

Our policies and procedures explain in detail the steps we take to satisfy the requirements of the EYFS in everyday practice.


We are inspected and regulated by Ofsted on the quality of our childcare provision against the requirements of the EYFS. Copies of our most recent Ofsted report is available to download.
