Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Here at Crossens Nursery School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.  The government requires all Nurseries to follow this statutory framework.
The Early Years Foundation Stage acknowledges that children learn best through first hand experiences, play and by following their own interests.  At Crossens Nursery School we think it is important that children are encouraged to be independent in their own learning.  The Early Years Foundation Stage is divided into 7 areas of learning and will include activities led by adults as well as independent and play-based activities carried out by the children themselves.  Follow our link in the Curriculum Section of this website to find out more about the 7 areas of learning within  the Early Years Foundation Stage.
