• Clayhall Nursery & Pre-School's curriculum adheres to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how early years professionals in conjunction with the Government define the “formative years” of a child’s life – 0 to 5 years old . Much of this definition is around standards for the care, learning and development of your child. As a registered Ofsted childcare provider, Clayhall Nursery and Pre-School follows the EYFS.

The areas of learning are
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
• literacy
• mathematics
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design

Clayhall Nursery ensures that the early years framework is followed at every stage of a child’s development. Milestones and ‘wow’ moments will be recorded in each individuals learning portfolio.
We lovingly implement the EYFS principles, which ensures that every child is prepared for life when they leave us and start school, so they can reach their fullest potential.
Working closely with the EYFS, parents and providing high quality learning through our dedicated staff, we are confident to provide the right foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
