Our aims at Uley Playgroup

It is the aim of Uley Playgroup to provide opportunities which support all aspects of your child’s learning and development, based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework published in March 2017. These principles provide a context for the requirements of the Playgroup, and describe how staff should support the development, learning and care of the children. The themes are further broken down into four commitments, describing how the principles can be put into practice. All our work is guided by the EYFS principles:

  • A unique child

    • Recognises that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident, and self-assured. The commitments are focused around development, inclusion, safety, and health & wellbeing.

  • Positive relationships

    • Describes how children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or key people. The commitments are focused around respect, partnership with parents, supporting learning, and the role of the key person.

  • Enabling environments

    • Explains that the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning. The commitments are focused around observation, assessment and planning, support for every child, the learning environment; and the wider context – transitions and continuity.

  • Learning & development

    • Recognises that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.
