EYFS

Welcome to Garfield Early Years.

Welcome to Garfield Early Years. We endeavour to inspire a life-long love of learning in children by encouraging them to develop their confidence and curiosity through a nurturing and stimulating environment. We provide the children with a play based curriculum which we base around topics to excite and engage them in their learning. The children will be provided with play-based and child-initiated activities as well as more formal methods of learning and adult-led group work.

There are three prime areas of learning which are vitally important and underpin all future learning;

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

There are also four specific areas of learning;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We pride ourselves on our open and clear communication with parents. We set aside time to have a home visit with every child before they start in our foundation stage to get to know our children and their families. We offer regular stay and play sessions throughout the year, and encourage communication from home through learning leaves and learning hands. If you ever have any queries or questions for the class teachers, please book an appointment via the office.

Please have a look at this helpful document, which will help you support your child’s learning:
