Structured learning at a pace that will suit your child


The EYFS- Early Years Foundation Stage

At Greengate House we are dedicated to every individual child’s learning journey. We have many years’ experience working with children and understand their needs and only provide the highest quality care and provision. Alongside our own philosophy we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which starts right from birth.

‘Children develop quickly in the early years; they are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them.

There are four themes of the EYFS that underpins all of the guidance:

A unique child – every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable confident and self- assured.

Positive relationships – children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships

Enabling environments – children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers

Learning and development – children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Areas of learning

In the EYFS there are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in Early Years settings.

Three of these areas, are called the prime areas:

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

Early Years Providers must also support children in four specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Greengate House Nursery understands that your child is a unique individual
