Welcome to EYFS!
Hello and welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!
Here at St Joseph’s we believe in providing children with a safe and stimulating environment where they can learn and flourish. We pride ourselves on listening to children and those who care for them and using this information to personalise each child’s learning. Learning should be fun and we strongly believe in first hand experiences, valuing the importance of the outdoor environment to develop children’s thinking and problem solving skills. We deliver a curriculum where play and learning are combined and are committed to giving our Pre-School and Reception children the best possible start to their school life.
What is the Early Years’ Quality Mark?
‘Recognising high quality Early Years’ provision’
This was awarded to us in recognition of our Early Years setting’s commitment to continually improving standards of high quality education and care for young children. Tribal's Quality Mark Early Years programme takes account of recent studies in early childhood education and a global understanding of best practice for our youngest children. The award recognises improving standards in the provision of communication and language, and mathematics. It provides evidence of high-quality education and care, and can support inspection preparation.
