Little Owls follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children will cover objectives from Outcomes for Children (see prime areas and specific areas). Staff also use the Development Milestones 2014 (‘From Birth to Five Years’ edition, Mary Sheridan) to assess the children.
Children in Early Years follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our aim is to provide the children with a play based curriculum that is tailored for each child’s individual needs. We offer a welcoming, safe and secure environment where children’s excitement and love of learning can be ignited and developed.
We will develop your child’s abilities across a range of areas, including Personal, Social and Emotional needs, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Children will cover objectives from Outcomes for Children (see prime areas and specific areas) throughout the year. Teachers select the objectives on a lesson by lesson basis, depending on the needs of the children. At the end of the Reception year children are assessed using the Early Learning Goals.
