(EYFS, 2012)We plan learning experiences and activities in partnership with parents, to support your child's development based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS, 2012). These skills help to support your children in working towards skills, understanding and knowledge. We provide a well planned curriculum to help children take their learning forward and to provide opportunities for all children.
