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.
