Hideaway Day Nursery

In September 2008 the government introduced a new curriculum called the early years foundation stage (EYFS). Through the EYFS stress is placed upon understanding that each child and their family are unique with different needs and concerns.

The EYFS is a "play based" curriculum. Play is a vital component of children's lives. Through play children learn about themselves, their environment, people and the world around them. Play also helps children to solve problems and get along with others. Children enhance their creativity and leadership skills and healthy personality.

Learning and development is promoted by encouraging further exploration which in turn will involve learning new concepts and testing a variety of new ideas.
