Early Years Foundation Stage

What we do at Pear Tree Nursery & Pre-School


Each child has a development file. When starting at the nursery we fill out a ‘Learning Journey’ to gain essential information from parents as the initial start of the child’s profile. Observations are undertaken every month comprised of ‘wow’ photographs and narrative observations. The observations are the evidence used in our assessment which leads to the planning of the child’s next steps.

The EYFS Statutory Framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
