Development Matters in the EYFS is a document that provides Guidance to ensure that we deliver high standards of early education and care that supports the development of every child. These principles underpin all future learning by supporting and fostering the children’s personal, social and emotional wellbeing. It encourages positive attitudes and dispositions towards learning, and promotes learning through play.

I am sure both you and your son/daughter are excited and also a bit nervous about starting school, especially if this is your first time!  Please don’t be, they will all be fine and so will you!

Below is a link to a CBeebies page where you will find some useful tips and ideas to make those first few days as enjoyable and stress free as possible.
