Development Matters


Our Reception classes (along with our Nursery) is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We use the indoor and outdoor environment to support play and learning. All children have access to the Reception play area during 'free play' or during adult-directed tasks.


There are four themes in the EYFS which express important principles underpinning effective practice in the care, development and learning of young children. These are:


  • A Unique Child
  • Positive Relationships
  • Enabling Environments
  • Learning & Development
