Foundation Stages

The Early Years Foundation Stage

A Nursery Education Grant is available to fund the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage for all children from the term after their third birthday, continuing to statutory school age. The grant currently provides for up to five free 3 hour sessions per week for 38 weeks per year, but only at a nursery that is registered to deliver Foundation education.

Blue Windmill Nursery is fully registered to provide funded sessions. We currently offer a choice of morning or afternoon sessions and we are pleased to be able to provide additional care to wrap around these three hour sessions, so that your child can (for example) attend for the whole morning or afternoon, incorporating the free session.

The Early Years Foundation stage focuses on the individual needs of children and consists of seven learning and development areas, all of which are supported whilst children are at Blue Windmill Nursery:

  • Personal, Social & Emotional development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematical development
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We recognise that children learn at different speeds and we use the EYFS development matters statements to monitor individual progress. Children are encouraged to investigate their own interests independently and are allowed to access resources to support their learning.

Activities and experiences provided by the staff team are based on their knowledge of what the children already know, and what they can do.

How do we assess your child ?

Our practitioners will assess your child's development in the following ways:

  • sharing conversations with your child
  • assessing work through adult led activities
  • sharing information with other practitioners
  • snapshot observations, visual and verbal
  • sharing information with you

All of this information is recorded confidentially and is available to you on request. The information is measured against the development matters statements and used to plan your child's next steps for learning.

How do we feed back to parents?

On a daily basis your child's key person will share with you both verbal and written information about your child's day, including dietary, toileting and restful periods. You will be invited periodically to attend parent(s) day / evenings, where you are given the opportunity to discuss your child's learning experiences and achievements against the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. We encourage parents to share with us their child's achievements at home.

Transfer Profile

When your child transfers to their chosen primary school, or to another pre-school setting, their key person will complete a written transfer profile, detailing your child's progress and achievements to date. This profile will be shared with you and will be used by the school to inform planning at the start of your child's reception year.

How can you help?

You can help by sharing information about your child: their interests, routines and personality traits. This helps staff to plan appropriate activities and experiences for your child, to capture their interest, catch their imagination and fire their enthusiasm to learn.
