Playwork & EYFS

We adhere closely to the Values & Assumptions of Playwork, which assumes that children’s play is freely chosen and also that a playworker aims to provide opportunities for the child to achieve her or his full potential, while not controlling the child’s direction or choice.

For those children in the Foundation Year (4 years) we continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
