The EYFS is based on play within the nursery setting, allowing children to development, learn and explore in a safe and secure yet challenging environment.
Our early years professionals follow the principles of these four area;
A unique child – every child is a competent leaner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.
Positive Relationships – children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or key person.
Enabling Environments – the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.
Learning and Development – children develop and learn in different ways and at different times; all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.
The EYFS is made up of three prime areas of learning and four Specific areas of learning in which our Early Years Professionals support children to learn and develop.
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication and language
Knowledge and understanding of the world
Expressive arts and design
When a new child joins one of our nurseries, we designate a key worker to work with them and create a bond, that will make them feel safe, reassured and cared for whilst in our care.
Each day your child attends nursery we will gather and log information about your child's day such as activities, meals, incidents/accidents, toileting and sleep times. This information will be passed to and from home where you can also add your comments, information and suggestions you wish to tell your nursery.
Each child will also receive a scrap book. Inside will have your child's art work, photographs and Development milestones for you to look back on when you leave our services. Some art work will also be sent home.
We, at Jacqueline's Gems fully understand that our parents are our children's primary educator. We encourage parent partnership throughout our settings, we love to hear our parents contributions to their children's learning and development.
