Foundation Stage Vision

In the Early Years Foundation Stage at Acre Heads, our vision is to provide an environment which promotes the learning and development of every child attending our setting. Our EYFS curriculum is designed to allow children to develop the knowledge and learning behaviours that they need to succeed in life. Children’s learning is led through a balance of discrete, adult-led sessions and carefully planned continuous provision where children have the opportunity to investigate and apply their learning using our stimulating indoor and outdoor environments.

Through building positive relationships, we aim to develop and foster the characteristic of effective learning in every child. Children are encouraged to become well-regulated and sociable through the modelling of positive interactions and language at all times.

We believe that all children are capable of achieving amazing things and we develop this through having high expectations of all the children in our setting. We also believe in working closely with parents to ensure that we can enable the best outcomes for our children.

Staff in the EYFS work tirelessly to create an environment that fosters personal, social and emotional development whilst also promoting a love of learning through our engaging topic based curriculum. Our strong focus on speech and language development allows children to access the EYFS curriculum and in turn make excellent progress towards reaching good levels of development at the end of Foundation Stage.
