There are three Prime Areas which are most essential for a child’s healthy development and future learning:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
There are then four specific areas in which children grow and learn:
Understanding the World

Please see the Parents Guide to the EYFS below to learn how we work in partnership with you to deliver the EYFS. Your key person will discuss with you how we capture and share your child’s observations, assessments and next steps in their learning on our online Learning Journal system which is called Tapestry.
We very much look forward to working in partnership with you.
