The EYFS Curriculum

At Blossoms we follow the the EYFS curriculum provided by our governing body Ofsted, which is followed by all registered early years settings nationwide. IThe EYFS curriculum was originally introduced in September 2008, revised and streamlined in September 2012 and further updated in September 2019.

All staff at Blossoms have been trained in the requirements of the EYFS and are very well-versed with the needs and various stages of development for early years children. They are able to implement the curriculum so that each child can access the activities offered in order to meet their individual needs and goals and progress is shared regularly with parents in order to best benefit each child with shared understanding between home and the nursery.

Each child is assigned a ‘key person’ who is responsible for all their record keeping and progress reports and each child has a Learning Journey which charts every aspect of their learning and development – from their very first day with us, right up until the day they leave us. This Learning Journey and is then available too both parents or primary school as a record of their achievements.

At Blossoms we recognise that each child is a unique individual that has been born ready, able and eager to learn. We know that children reach out to interact with other people and the world around them; but we understand that development is not an automatic process. Development in all children depends on each child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and environments which enable their learning to take place. Our staff team are specifically chosen and trained to  be able to bring together the themes and principles of the EYFS curriculum in order to help all the children at Blossoms to actively learn, interact positively and grow and develop in every possible way.
