Partnership with parents
Partnership with parents is very important to us all here at Sudbury Town Nursery School. As your child’s very first educators we encourage all our parents to take part in their development whilst they are here with us.
We hand over at the end of each session or day talking through how your child has been and what they have eaten. We offer termly reviews as well as an open door policy to talk through any concerns you may have or for you to just discuss your child’s development with us. Each child is allocated a key worker when they start here at Sudbury Town Nursery School who will be responsible for their development and learning journeys.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
The EYFS is split into 7 areas of learning. The three prime areas which children mostly start to develop first consist of:
• Communication and Language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
It is these Prime areas that are most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.
As children grow, the Prime areas will help them to develop into four specific areas. These are:
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design
With your continuous support and your child’s key person, our curriculum planning is designed to be flexible so that staff can plan specific and relevant experiences and activities which follow your child’s individual needs and interests. Children display various characteristics of effective learning and acquire skills and knowledge by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outdoors.
