At Little Bunnies, we follow The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS). The EYFS outlines expected development stages from birth – 5 years old. The curriculum ensures our activities, resources and environment is challenging as well as stimulating. This gives the children the very best start to their education. The children’s progress through the EYFS is documented on Tapestry, an online journal. Each child has their own profile which parents/carers have access to view and interact with the nursery. This is password protected.

Policies & Procedures
September 2022

Policies and procedures are essential to help you provide good quality provision that is compliant with the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). They do this by making clear to staff and parents what sort of setting you are and what actions you take to make sure that this happens. The EYFS requires providers to have written policies and procedures and to ensure that staff are given training at induction about them and that they are accessible and explained to parents.
