At Sunflowers Pre-School we follow the Early Years Framework as part of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. This informs our teaching and policies. For more details on this follow this link.... https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/974907/EYFS_framework_-_March_2021.pdf
We believe in child-led play and that children will be learning and developing at the highest level when they are highly engaged in play. The environment is set up to allow the children to explore and investigate at their level and in their own time with highly skilled staff supporting and extending their experiences. Alongside this we do have themes e.g. 'Transport' to create some planned experiences and enhanced activities based on the children's current interests.
We use an online learning journal which you will receive observations of your child through. We also encourage you to send some back to us in the same way so that we can create a complete picture of your child and their journey. Below is a link to Tapestry log in....
Termly newsletters will be sent out to keep parents updated with changes and important dates as well as regular safeguarding reminders. Please follow this link...
You are always welcome to contact us with any queries or questions or arrange to come in and have a chat in private about your child's learning and development.
