Puddleducks Chalford Hill
Puddleducks believe that every child deserves the best possible start to their early education and we will provide support to enable them to fulfil their potential. We provide teaching and learning to ensure children are fully ready to move on to school. Puddleducks aims to provide a secure, safe and happy environment for the children in our care. We follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.
The Underpinning themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage are:
A Unique child – Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Positive relationships – Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Enabling environments – Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experienced carers respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.
Learning and development – Children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
