LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
A natural environment provides a calming effect, engendering a sense of well-being and purpose that is freeing children’s voices and imagination. Bristol Early Years strongly advocates outdoor learning, recognising its benefits in terms of healthy living and its potential to enhance all aspects of children’s development.
The guiding principles underpinning the UNICEF Convention of the Rights of the Child are regarded as a touchstone for every aspect of our work with children, families and communities.
The overarching principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) guide our everyday interactions.
