What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the period of a child’s education from birth to five years. There is a strong emphasis on learning through play, both child initiated and planned play. The curriculum is delivered through a combination of whole class activities, adult led focused activities and child initiated activities.
At Moat House we believe that childhood is a time of play, and through play we discover the excitement of learning, the rewards of achievement, and acquire our life skills. Our Foundation Stage, with its well planned, bright, colourful, stimulating environment encourages the children in the development of skills, attitudes and understanding that will help them to live full satisfying lives and become confident, useful, active members of a diverse and constantly changing society.
It is through this process that the children work towards, achieve and in some cases exceed the Early Learning Objectives as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile reported at the end of the Foundation Stage.
