Why is learning and development key?
Learning and development shape the activities and experiences that childcare providers offer children under the age of 5. The EYFS states that the educational programme offered must involve activities and experiences that cover 7 significant and inter-connected areas of learning and development.
Giggle and Grow Pre- School follows a daily and long-term plan to support a children’s pre-school education. Our planning will mirror the principles from the Early Years Foundation Stage framework as well as the childrens interests. The pre-school will adapt its curriculum using Birth to 5 Matters to support practitioners to implement the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in a pedagogically sound, principled and evidence-based way. Practitioners can then use their professional judgement based on their knowledge of the children in their setting and their wider context including family, community and the setting itself to carefully meet the needs of individual children by regularly monitoring their progress.
At Giggle and Grow Pre-school we operate with the Government’s mandated EYFS statutory framework 2021. A copy of this document can be found here.
