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.
