Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Cavendish Pre-school. Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our setting helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.
What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?
This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs. Our pre-school is registered to deliver the EYFS and we follow the legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage. The EYFS focuses on what matters most. This new framework also has a greater emphasis on your role in helping your child develop. You can find out more about this guidance together with ‘what to expect when’ and how to support your child during their foundation years at www.foundationyears.org.uk
