Planning and Routine
At Scallywags we plan the activities for the children around the Early Years Foundation Stage and the guidelines which we receive from Ofsted and Devon County Council.
We regularly ask both the children and the parents to let us know of any particular interests so we can plan activities based around them, engaging the children's attention from the start and encouraging a desire for learning and exploration.
We also have a yearly plan which gives the staff an idea of areas that may need to be covered each term and is used as a starting point for our weekly planning.
When you visit us at Scallywags you may notice that we have different areas which are designed to build on each area of the Early Years Foundation Stage and everything which is set out for the children will link into a number of different learning areas for each child.
