The Early Years Foundation Stage

The staff at Smithfield House Children's Nursery follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2017 which encourages development and learning from birth to 5 years.

The aim of the framework is to encourage young children to achieve the 'Every Child Matters' outcomes, of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well being. The nursery undertakes the responsibility of ensuring that the children are provided with opportunities to develop a solid platform for future learning, enabling them to reach their full potential in a fun-filled, child centred environment.

The framework ensures that the children have access to a range of play activities, resources for learning and that the inclusion of every child is of paramount importance.

Through observing and assessing, children's individual needs are met and children can make progress through the 'Development Matters' section of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
