At Whinstone, the EYFS forms the underpinning and overarching framework for learning and development for all children in our care. We intend to enable our children to learn holistically through a combination of access to quality first teaching and through play, experimentation, and exploration while making friends, developing social skills and cultural capital. We aim to ensure that every child has an excellent start to school life, achieving and making progress across each aspect of the EYFS Profile.
The seven areas of learning and development that comprise the Early Years Foundation Stage are:
Personal, social and emotional development (PSED)
Communication and Language (CL)
Physical development (PD)
Understanding the world (UTW)
Expressive arts and design (EAD)
