At Little Clowns we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidance. This is a framework put together by the DCSF and covers all children from 0-5 years. It focuses on four themes
- A unique Child
- Positive Relationships
- Enabling Environments
- Learning and Development
Children have opportunities to experience and develop in all the areas shown on the right through a balance of child initiated and adult led activities. Our ethos is ‘Learning through play,’ Children are only this special age once and we feel it is important not to rush childhood. We understand that through play, observation, interaction, and challenging children are motivated and develop into keen learners.
We go outside every session, as much as is possible and encourage children to be fit and healthy, while exploring the outdoor environment. Parents/carers are informed of daily activities on a notice board within the lobby.
