EYFS Early Years Foundation

At Flowertots, we adhere to the EYFS framework.

  

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.


The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.


As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.

Our Values

  

We encourage our children to follow and use our Little Flowertots ‘Golden Rules’ promoting good behaviour and manners. 


We use positive strategies to handle conflict and praise and acknowledge desirable behaviours. 


The children are given responsibilities and are expected to make a fair contribution to activities such as helping to tidy away at the end of a session. 


Children are involved in discussions about rules and are expected to contribute and cooperate with them.


Healthy Eating

  

At Flowertots we encourage healthy eating for all our children and therefore we provide breakfast, lunch, tea, morning and afternoon snacks for your child.


We ensure that all our children receive a correct and healthy nutritional diet required for them to develop and grow. 


We have easy to understand menus to help parents understand what the children are receiving during their time at the daycare. 


Our staff sit with the children at meal times to promote good eating habits.


Our meals are prepared and cooked on premises by staff who hold the relevant food Hygiene certificates.


On request we can cater for allergies and special diets


Child Development

Parents can use an online tracking system 'Capture' to see what experiences your child is having in the daycare.  Also as part of your child's development we send home an 'All about me' booklet tailored to your child every term so you can see their progress during their time with us.

Breakfast and After School Club

We are able to offer breakfast and after school club for primary school children up to 11 years of age. Staff will escort the children from breakfast club to school and collect them from school to the after school club.  Please speak to the manager for more details.
