The Service We Provide – Aims
We aim to provide children in our care with the opportunity to develop at their own pace, to feel valued and secure, and to develop positive self-esteem and confidence
in themselves and others.
We aim to do this by providing a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment
with quality play experiences, encouraging interaction with adults and children
and provide opportunities for children to make choices, to explore, and to communicate their ideas.
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The (EYFS) Early Years Foundation Stage really covers all that we do with the
children, including regular routines, planned activities and unplanned opportunities
and includes group experiences. We plan to provide varied and stimulating activities according to individual needs and preferences and to use spontaneous opportunities as they arise.
As childminders, working in a home environment, we have the flexibility to use and value such events as the birth of a new baby in the family, changes in the weather and interest developing from new books or items brought in by the minded children.
We are able to take advantage of local events, to visit places of special interest, and we aim to offer the children in our care a wide range of experiences.
The (EYFS) is from birth to 31 August after their 5 birthday, with children progressing through the six Areas of Learning and Development. We aim to plan a flexible curriculum, supported by the accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage and to provide learning opportunities within these
Seven Areas of Learning, these being:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding of the World
Expressive Art & Design
Parents are welcome to view and discuss their child’s learning journal. The regular activities plan will be on display at the notice board for parent’s information.
Learning Journals of Children's Progress
Whilst playing and interacting with the children we are continually observing and assessing. We aim to work in partnership with parents and will share with them in daily diary news about our day’s activities.
We keep photographic records of activities, and children have individual records of their progress to share with parents. We aim to use observations to inform our planning, to build on achievements and interests and to support children's ongoing development in all areas.
