Every Child matters

At Battisford Pre-School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
framework which is based around these four themes:

  • A Unique Child
  • Positive Relationships
  • Enabling Environments
  • Learning and Development

These in turn are linked to the Every Child Matters outcomes which are:

  • Being Healthy
  • Staying Safe
  • Enjoying & Achieving
  • Making a positive contribution
  • Economic well-being

By allowing children to learn through their play, listening and acting on children’s needs and interests we are able to incorporate the EYFS curriculum into our daily routine.
