Our Policies

Sunshine Pre-school has a range of policies and procedures in place to ensure that our working practice is of high quality, and meets the needs of all children in our care.

Our policies and procedures are underpinned by the Department for Education, Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS) which sets national standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five.

The EYFS seeks to provide:

• Quality and consistency in all early years settings

• A secure foundation for learning and development

• Partnership working between practitioners and parents

• Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice

If you would like more information on the EYFS, please speak to your key person or go to the Department of Education website.

Copies of our policies are available for parents to read at the setting in our ‘Operational Plan’ and your key person will be happy to discuss them with you if you would like clarification on any points.

An overview of our main policies and what they mean in practice can be found in our Welcome Books for St Gerard’s, St Martin’s and School House.
