Early Years Foundation Stage
High quality Early Years education gives children the foundations they need to take the next steps in their learning journey. At Homerswood we want our children to be confident, well rounded individuals with a love for learning for life. We want them to be engaged and motivated about what they are learning and develop curiosity along with the self-regulation, resilience, independence and confidence they need in order to be successful in the rest of their school life. We believe that all our children matter and we give them every opportunity to achieve their best.
Working together, in partnership with parents, carers and other setting to provide the best possible starts at Homerswood, ensuring each individual reaches their full potential from their various starting points.
High priority is given to developing children’s vocabulary and language and we want children to become confident and capable readers who demonstrate a love of sharing books and reading, stories and rhymes.
In the EYFS we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
This is organised into 7 areas of learning:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
