A new parents’ guide to the way that children develop in the first five years has recently been published. It is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we feel that it provides a valuable tool for parents to gain a better understanding of their child’s development.
Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.
At Compton Valley Nursery we have decided to adopt the development statements within this document as a way of recording each child’s development. We feel that this will make it clearer for you to see where your child is developmentally.
Please feel free to ask a member of staff for more information or book an appointment with your child’s key worker if you wish to discuss your child’s development.
