Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)




What we do at Lower Covey

Each child has a development file. When starting at the nursery we fill out a ‘Learning Journey’ to gain

essential information from parents as the initial start of the child’s profile. Observations are undertaken

every month comprised of ‘wow’ photographs and narrative observations. The observations are the evidence

used in our assessment which leads to the planning of the child’s next steps.

The EYFS Statutory Framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that

children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure

children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the

right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
