At Charnwood we follow the Curriculum Guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The EYFS is the Early Years Foundation Stage, the stage of a child’s development between birth and the age of 5. The child remains in this stage until the end of reception year at school. The EYFS framework has to be followed by all nurseries, pre-schools, reception classes and childminders registered to deliver the EYFS. The framework supports those working with young children in providing high quality care and learning experiences and in working in partnership with families.
