The Avenue Nursery Petersfield

Early Years Foundation Stage 

We balance established educational principles and acknowledged values with current advice and guidance in nursery care and educational thinking. We plan activities and resources with the core Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. This supports staff in observing, planning and reporting on the children's stages of development.
Parents can securely log in to our learning portal to view their child’s achievements and next steps which are recorded by their key person each week.  Key persons will identify areas where a child may need additional support, or opportunities for extended learning, and discuss these with parents. Our Local Offer.pdf  also outlines the support and guidance we offer to children and families who have additional needs.
We teach all areas of learning in- and outdoors, and encourage enquiry based learning to inspire creativity, confidence and independence.  Children learn to serve themselves and others lunch, drinks and snacks, and get themselves ready for outings. This helps prepare them for the transition to primary school.
