NURSERY GUIDING PRINCIPLES The guiding principles of the Nursery Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) which shape our learning programme are: A Unique Child Our staff keenly observe, monitor and understand your child’s development and learning, identifying all the child’s needs, requirements for additional support, inclusion, safety, health and well-being. Positive Relationships Our staff foster a sense of belonging in your child, and are sensitive and responsive to your child’s needs, feelings and interests. They also support and build your relationship with your child. We get to know you, your child and learn about the values, expectations and the factors that shape your lives at home and in your community. Enabling Environments Our staff provide a stimulating, extremely well-resourced learning environment to your child with rich learning opportunities. They also provide opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s development at the Nursery. Learning and Development Our staff provide your child challenging, playful opportunities across the prime and specific areas of learning and development.
