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 their interests so we can work on these interests and plan activities that the children will enjoy as when a child has a particular interest they will learn a lot more by building on this.
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.
