Fireflies (3-4s)

In Fireflies, practitioners follow the DfE Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (effective 1st September 2021) and the DfE Development Matters – Non-statutory curriculum guidance for the early years foundation stage (revised July 2021).

Practitioners plan around children’s interests, building on their existing knowledge and previous experiences to take them on to the next steps in their learning and development. At times, practitioners may plan activities around a particular topic or theme to generate learning interest and introduce new skills, concepts and knowledge.

The document in the section below outlines the knowledge and skills that children should broadly develop between the ages of 3 to 4 years in each of the seven areas of learning.

You will also find stories, rhymes and videos on our Google Classroom which we create your child a login for when they join the Nursery.
