LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
How Twinkles Nurseries uses the EYFS Curriculum to help your child develop
Early Years Foundation Stage – from birth to five years old
At Twinkles we recognise strongly believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life, along with support to enable them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. As a childcare provider, we must meet the criteria of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is defined by the Department for Education. This means following a structure of learning, development and care for children aged up to five years old. We are wholeheartedly committed to the EYFS, ensuring that:
Children learn through play
We work closely with all parents
We keep you up-to-date on your child’s progress
We meet the welfare, learning and all-round development needs of children with different backgrounds and levels of ability, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.
At Twinkles we help children reach their full potential, by delivering the EYFS curriculum of learning through a range of experiences and activities. All our children are assigned a Key Person, right from their very first visit. As part of their role, your Key Person will carefully track your child’s development through observation and assessment and plan a wide range of activities & experiences to ensure that progress is made in all areas of the EYFS.
“Children benefit from the warm and close relationships they build with the kind and caring staff. Staff collect detailed information about children and use this to establish familiar routines, which promotes good transitions between rooms and helps children to settle quickly. This fosters children’s emotional well-being very well.”
“Children benefit from the wonderful opportunities they have to learn about the differences between themselves and others. For example, they access celebration events and festivals with staff in the local city centre areas where they meet new people from diverse communities. Children make hampers and take these to the neighbouring children’s hospital to celebrate different religious festivals”
