“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.” - Early Years Foundation Stage Profile: Department for Children, Schools and Families 2012.
Planning will consider the emotional, social, physical, creative and intellectual development of the children and will be based upon what the children can do. Learning will be active and involve first hand experiences using cross-curricular topics – holistic learning - set in meaningful contexts. It will value the children’s own interests.
