Designed to teach and educate your child through fun and engaging activities, Ladybird embraces the EYFS and introduces its own methods to set a new standard of childcare.

The EYFS was introduced into nurseries in September 2008. It consists of a statutory framework for the Early Years which sets the standards for learning development and care for children from birth to five years. The practice guidance documents support staff in assessing a child's progress and helps them to provide the best learning experiences for all babies and children.

 

The aim

The aim of the EYFS is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn through high quality play experiences and that they will be supported through this journey by their relationship with their key person.

All children have a key carer, who is responsible for their needs during their time at nursery. This will include making observations on your child’s development as well as giving meals and feeds and carrying out nappy changes or potty training, as appropriate. You will be included in your child’s day at nursery through daily diaries (for younger children) and notice boards and conversations (for older children). Our nursery policy requires all staff to be inclusive of all families, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality and disability. We recognise the diversity of families in the 21st century and welcome all families into our settings, including LGBT families.

You are welcome to our nurseries at any time, we have an open door policy and want you to feel free to drop in whenever you like and see what is going on.
