How Sunbeams educates children in line with the EYFS

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets our standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and key stage one classes.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports us to deliver an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives our professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives parents confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.

The following themes of learning are key:
Unique child + positive relationships + enabling environment = learning and development.

Observation – Assessment – Planning are the three stages are how we support learning through the EYFS here at Sunbeams.
