Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Prime Areas

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This area is very important to children just entering into the nursery way of life. We aim for children to become confident when being left by their parent/carer and to feel safe and secure, enabling them to build up a trust with the adults and the children with whom they will be sharing a range of experiences. We aim to allow the children to develop their social skills and to become independent when taking part in and choosing activities of their individual choice whilst learning to accept the needs of others within a group.
