The principles which guide the work of all early years Practitioners are grouped into four themes:
Meeting the individual needs of all children lies at the heart of the EYFS. Therefore here at Good Manors we will promote a positive attitude to diversity and difference within all children. This includes making sure all children and families feel included, safe and valued. A key person will be assigned to your child at the start of your child’s attendance at the nursery.
We will plan for each child’s individual care and learning requirements, which will help us to identify and respond to at an early stage to needs which may lead to the development of learning difficulties.
It is very important that staff and parents work together to support your child. Practitioners will plan activities by observing and reflecting on children’s spontaneous play, and will keep you regularly informed of your child’s progress through our online learning journey software, Tapestry.
It is important to note that children will not necessarily progress at the same rate as the published guidance. Some elements may appear to have been achieved quickly, others will take much longer.
The EYFS especially focuses on continuous provision; this enables the child to feel that everything has a place and that it will be there whenever they want it. The key person assigned to them will be there to support them, to offer encouragement and provide a trusting relationship. This will make the child feel safe and secure when attending the nursery, and will help the child flourish in their environment. Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously, although some may need adult support, and it is through play that they develop intellectually, creativity, physically, socially and emotionally. By providing well-planned experiences based on children’s spontaneous play, both indoors and outdoors, is an important way in which key persons support young children to learn with enjoyment and challenge.
If a child attends more than one setting the nursery will ensure effective continuity and progression by sharing relevant information with them.
