EYFS Information and Eylog

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

As a provider we are required to use the revised EYFS to ensure that parents can be confident that their child will receive a quality experience that supports their development and learning. The statutory early learning goals establish expectations for most children to reach by the end of the EYFS. They provide the basis for planning throughout the EYFS, so laying secure foundations from birth for future learning. By the end of the EYFS, some children will have exceeded the goals. Other children, depending on their individual needs, will be working towards some or all of the goals - particularly some younger children, some children with learning difficulties and disabilities and some learning English as an additional language.


Eylog is an itegrated online and mobile application for childcare providers to easily capture and securely manage the learning journey of a child in an electric format.

Using this secure mobile online device, we as nursery practionors can easily create and maintain a childs EYFS learning journey with all the relevant milestones, text, photo's, audios and videos.

Learning and Development

The seven areas of Learning and Development are divided into three “Prime Areas” and four “Specific Areas”.

The prime areas develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences. They run through and support learning in all other areas. The prime areas continue to be fundamental throughout the EYFS.

The Prime Areas are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. They grow out of the prime areas, and provide important contexts for learning. The Specific Areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

What our parents say

  • "I just wanted to thank you for giving my son a lovely time at nursery since he started with you. You have given him such a great start in his early years and we are really grateful to you. He is well prepared to continue into his next stage at school and has adapted well and is enjoying school so far. He has lots of happy memories with you all and talks about being at nursery a lot."
  • "Thank you so much for all the help you have given us with our son. The way in which you and the nursery have dealt with his diagnosis, development and care has been great and always inclusive. You all need to know what a beacon of excellence you have been for us – which we would have driven miles if needed – but was here on our doorstep! Thank you for always making us and our son feel welcome and never a burden."
  • "Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the kindness, patience and care you show my son. He is so happy at nursery and smiles lots! Jodie, Shauni, Caitlin and Terrie, and all the baby room ladies are brilliant with him and it feels like we are a team, which is wonderful to a parent leaving their precious bundle in someone else’s hands. Thank you so much for making his first 3 months with you such a pleasure."
