Early Years Foundation Stage

Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. That's why they are called the Foundation Years – the building blocks for life! During these Foundation Years, children's health, maternal mental health, parenting style, learning activities and early education are all influencing factors that can make a big difference to your child's future.

Here at Coppull St John's the children follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework. This framework ‘sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.’
