mission statement

We believe it is important that the children in our care are guaranteed a happy and secure environment. We will enable them to enjoy learning through play to develop to their fullest potential.

We Aim:

  • To show a commitment to the Early Years Foundation Stage (see below), this will be done through constant provisions and daily activities to help the children learn and achieve in different areas.
  • To provide free flow play with inside and outside areas, we like the children to have a safe and open environment to play and have adventures.
  • We also like to take the children out for trips to Local Sure Start Centres, other playgroups, other childminders, Libraries, farms, parks and any other places where the children can learn and play safely.
  • To treat every child as an individual as they all have different needs, skills and backgrounds.
  • To listen to the children and encourage them to express their ideas and positively contribute to our childminding setting, its environment and activities.
  • To provide services which are taylor made to satisfy both the children’s, parents and our needs, by keeping them well motivated and enthusiastic.

We have CYPOP5, First Aid, Food Hygiene and Safe Guarding Certificates which you are welcome to look at, we also have policies and procedures and risk assessments in place which we will go through with you. So if you have any questions they can be answered.

We will also set up a signed contract with you so we both have an understanding of the child care we offer. All of the information you share with us will not be shared with anyone else unless we have a signed agreement from yourselves.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) was put into place in September 2008 and is split into overlapping age brackets reflecting different rates that children learn and develop at, these brackets are: birth-11 months, 8-20 months, 22-36 months, and 40-60+ months.

The EYFS is divided into four different themes, these are:

  • A Unique Child
  • Positive Relationships
  • Enabling Environment
  • Learning and Development

Effective practice is built on these four themes, and this approach ensures that it meets and reflects every child’s right to grow up safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and with economic well-being.

The EYFS sets standards to enable early years providers to reflect the experiences that parents give their child at home, childcarers, want to deliver individualised learning, development and care to give the children in their care the best possible start in life.

For more information regarding the EYFS please consult their website by clicking here.

how we will implement the EYFS

We will ensure to meet the guidelines and requirements set out in the EYFS, we will offer continuous provision with a range of resources to offer the most to the children.

We will carry out regular observations on all the children in our care, this will help us to monitor their progress, identify their interests and give us a starting point for planning. Planning needs to be carried out to ensure that the children’s development is progressed and the children are being stimulated, and any areas that need focusing on can be identified and necessary steps can be taken.

We fully recognise that you as parents are the most knowledgeable about your child. We would appreciate any extra insight that you can provide. The EYFS is not just while a child is in our care it is about children as a whole, so please tell me about things that your child has done, and is interested in so it can be included in the observation.
