In our Early Years Foundation Stage we seek to provide every child with quality and consistency so that every child makes good progress, a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities, partnership working between our practitioners and yourselves and equality of opportunity so that every child is included and supported.
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.” (Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, DfE, March 2021)
