How the Early Years Framework helps your child in our playgroup

The Early Years framework is very important to help your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5 their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure, supporting their development, care and learning needs.

The framework exists to support all staff working in the EYFS to help your child.

There are 7 areas of learning and development which guide staff’s engagement with your child’s play and activities as they learn.

Your child will be learning skills, acquiring knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through the 7 areas of learning and development.

The 3 prime areas are:

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

These 3 areas are the most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As your child grows these 3 areas will help them to develop in 4 specific areas which are:

Literacy, Maths, Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design

All of these areas will be used to plan your child’s learning and activities.

These may include painting, drawing, role play, imaginative play, physical games, number rhymes, singing and dancing and a whole lot more.

All activities take place indoors and outdoors and planning is focused on a learning area each week.

It is our intention to involve parents in our planning and parents/carers are welcome to suggest ideas for their children to participate in whilst attending our playgroup.
