Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the structured learning and development program that is followed right through your child’s early education, including their reception year at school. The EYFS Framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development.
Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. These are, Communication and Language, Physical development, Personal, social and emotional development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design.

At Playhouse Day Nursery, we use an Online Learning Journal Program called Tapestry. Tapestry is a secure Learning Journal to record photos, videos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us.
This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the classroom.
At Playhouse Day Nursery, we fully understand the idea that a key person for each child helps each child to feel safe, secure and valued. At the start of your child’s journey into nursery she/he will be assigned a key person. This key person can be changed if your child naturally gravitates towards another adult. The Key person is based in your child’s room with other members of staff who also get to know your child well, so that staff holidays and staff sickness don’t distress your child.
The Key person is simply there to ensure your child is well cared for in a safe environment and is reaching their potential through observations and assessment. Key person boards are located around the nursery for you to view.
