The Little Dreamers Nursery: Nurturing Early Excellence through EYFS and Development Matters in FS1


At The Little Dreamers Nursery, our commitment to providing an enriching, supportive, and stimulating environment for our young learners is at the heart of everything we do. Our Foundation Stage 1 (FS1) program is meticulously designed around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and Development Matters guidelines, ensuring that every child receives the best possible start to their educational journey.


A Foundation of Excellence

The EYFS framework, recognized for setting the standards for learning, development, and care for children from birth to five years, is integral to our approach. In FS1, we lay the groundwork for children’s future learning by focusing on the prime and specific areas of the EYFS, which include Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social, and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design.


Personalized Learning Journeys

At Little Dreamers, we understand that each child is unique, with their own interests, abilities, and learning pace. Our dedicated educators craft personalised learning experiences that foster curiosity, creativity, and a love for learning. Through play-based activities, guided learning sessions, and exploratory projects, children in FS1 develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and a deep understanding of the world around them.


Development Matters in Action

The Development Matters guidance supports our curriculum, offering a flexible and child-centred approach to planning and assessment. This ensures that learning is both meaningful and enjoyable, tailored to the individual needs and stages of development of each child. Our educators are adept at observing, assessing, and planning for each child’s next steps, making learning in FS1 at Little Dreamers both impactful and fun.


A Rich Learning Environment

The Little Dreamers Nursery boasts state-of-the-art facilities designed to inspire and engage young minds. Our learning spaces are vibrant and welcoming, filled with resources that stimulate imagination and creativity. From well-equipped outdoor play areas that encourage physical activity and exploration to cosy reading corners that foster a love for stories, every aspect of our nursery is thoughtfully designed to support children’s holistic development.


Beyond the Classroom

We believe that learning extends beyond the classroom walls. Our FS1 program includes a variety of extracurricular activities and field trips that enrich the curriculum themes and connect children with their community and the natural world. These experiences are invaluable, helping children to apply their learning in real-world contexts and develop a sense of belonging and responsibility towards their environment.


Preparing for the Future

The skills, knowledge, and attitudes nurtured in FS1 at The Little Dreamers Nursery lay a solid foundation for children’s future academic and personal success. Our holistic approach ensures that children not only achieve their early learning goals but also develop confidence, resilience, and a lifelong passion for learning.


As we reflect on the achievements and progress of our FS1 children, we are filled with pride and optimism for their futures. The Little Dreamers Nursery remains committed to excellence in early childhood education, where every child is valued, supported, and inspired to dream big.
