EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a framework for children up to the age of five, setting out six key areas of learning around which activities should be based.

Prime areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development

Specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Knowledge of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

At St. John’s we ensure that all children are able to develop and use a range of skills in exciting ways both inside and outside. Each child has a key worker who will work closely with parents and carers to share successes and work on “next steps”.
