Little Imp aims to provide high quality care and education. We work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop. We also aim to give children in our care new and exciting experiences that follow their interests.
We follow Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which covers the development of children from birth to the end of their Reception Year. The aim of the EYFS is to ensure that children learn and develop and are kept healthy and safe. It says there are four guiding principles which should shape practice in early year’s settings. Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships. Children learn and develop well in enabling environments with teaching and support from adults, who respond to their individual interests and needs and help them to build their learning over time. Children benefit from a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers. Children learn and develop at different rates.
In every room there are areas where the children can be active or be quiet and rest. The resources are set up to help the children find toys independently. When the children go outside in our garden or the park opposite it gives them opportunities to explore, use their senses and be physically active. We plan activities around children’s interest and their age and stage that help the children to develop in all seven areas of learning.
” At Little Imp we all grow together to be all we can be.”
