The early years foundation stage (EYFS)


A wealth of research shows how critical the early years are to children’s long-term development.

Bradbourne Park belongs to the Early Years Alliance, an organisation which supports early years providers to deliver high quality care and learning.

Their #WeAreEducators campaign aims to raise awareness of the quality education provided by early years professionals and the foundations we are laying for years to come - the reason our curriculum is called the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We've been mentioned on the campaign Facebook page as an example of good practice!

Along with all early years providers in England, we follow a legal document called the Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (EYFS) (DfE 2021) which sets the standards that providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.
