Philosophy

Early childhood is the foundation on which children build the rest of their lives. It is not just preparation for the next stage - it is vitally important in itself.

Introduction

The Early Years Foundation Stage Policy at Creative Home Nursery applies to all children from when they join Lower Kindergarten at age two, until the end of their Reception year (the academic year in which they turn five). The children in Lower and Upper Kindergarten follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which prepares them for learning in Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum.

Children joining Creative Home Nursery have already learnt a great deal, with their parents and carers as their main educators. We recognise that effective practice within the Early Years Foundation Stage is built on four guiding themes, and we base the education we offer on these, as outlined below.

  • A unique child

    we build on what children already know and can do, and we ensure that all children are included and have access to the whole curriculum.
  • Positive relationships

    we encourage the development of independence from the base of a secure relationship with a key person, and we work in partnership with parents, welcoming and valuing their contributions.
  • Enabling environments

    we provide a rich and stimulating environment to support and extend children’s learning and development.
  • Learning and development

    we offer a structure for learning that has a range of starting points, content that matches the needs of young children and activity that provides opportunities for learning both indoors and outdoors.

Aims

Our aims for teaching and learning
in the Early Years Foundation Stage are:

To promote the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual development of each child.

To provide a stimulating and safe environment for learning where children can engage in first hand experiences.

To support and extend children’s learning through purposeful observation, evaluation and interaction.
