Early Years Foundation Stage

Personal, social and emotional development

Our programme supports children to develop:

  • positive approaches to learning and finding out about the world around them;
  • confidence in themselves and their ability to do things, and valuing their own achievements;
  • their ability to get on, work and make friendships with other people, both children and adults;
  • their awareness of, and being able to keep to, the rules which we all need to help us to look after ourselves, other people and our environment
  • their ability to dress and undress themselves, and look after their personal hygiene needs; and
  • their ability to expect to have their ways of doing things respected and to respect other people's ways of doing things.
