What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the stage of education for children from birth to the end of the Reception year.
It is based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning.
The Learning Journey is an open record of your child’s learning and development. It is a personal record of that unique child as it builds up a picture of what a child knows, understands, feels and can do. Each child will have a Learning Journey that includes:
Observations: formal observations, snapshot notes;
Children’s work: photographs, pieces of work;
Voices: comments from the child
Partnership with Parents
“Parents are children’s first and most enduring educators. When parents and practitioners work together in early years settings, the results have a positive impact on children’s development and learning.”
(National Assessment Agency, 2008)
