Little Owl and the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)
Have you considered coming to Little Owl rather than signing up for another morning at nursery? Book Club is something you can do with your child but still be certain they're getting educational value. We cover all of the learning and development aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage and rely on its guidance for planning and executing our classes. For more information - see below.
What is the EYFS?
It's the legal framework set out by the Department for Education concerning the ideal goals in education for under 5s. It covers learning, assessment, safeguarding and welfare requirements for nurseries, schools and child-minders. At Little Owl Book Club we're not bound by the EYFS but we find it an invaluable guide for our classes. If you'd like to view the full document you can find it here (April 2017):
How does Little Owl work towards the EYFS?
Little Owl Book Club is guided by the same basic principles at the core of the EYFS: every child is unique, constantly learning, and can best learn through positive relationships with carers and teachers.
Within the EYFS there are seven areas of learning and development – all of which we incorporate into our classes.
We do all of this in a 50 minute session, so come along and give us a try!
