All our settings follow the Reggio Approach
to learning and are fully inclusive to all children. We also follow the revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to track children’s progress and development. The EYFS comprises of seven areas of development.
Prime areas are fundamental, work together, and move through to support development in all other areas:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication and language
- Physical development
Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to participate successfully in society:
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
Each child has their own individual Learning Journey, which is held by a designated key person or key worker.
Observations are completed on the child and filed in their Learning Journey document. During transition to primary school, the children are presented with their Learning Journey as a keepsake. The chosen school are sent a report, mapping the development of each child within the seven areas of development.
