ABOUT EYFS

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a comprehensive framework which sets the standards for early years development, learning and welfare from birth to five years of age.

It provides a structure to guide practitioners with providing effective provision in their settings and builds on previous guidance.

The overarching aim of the EYFS is to help young children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcome to:

?  Be healthy,

?  Stay safe,

?  Enjoy and achieve,

?  Make a positive contribution,

?  Achieve economic well-being.

The EYFS will achieve this aim by a principled approach to:

 

1.    Setting standards for the learning, development and care young children should experience when they are attending a setting outside their family home, ensuring that every child makes progress and no child is being left behind;

2.    Promoting equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and not disadvantaged due to ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, gender or ability;

3.    Creating a framework for partnership working between parents and professionals, and between all settings that the child attends;

4.    Improving quality and consistency in the early years sector through a universal set of standards which apply to all settings, ending the distinction between care and learning in the existing frameworks, and providing the basis for the inspection and regulation regime;

5.    Laying a secure foundation for future learning and development: time is taken to cater for the individual needs and interests of each child through regular observational assessments carried out by our fully trained, qualified staff members, thus allowing your child to grow not only academically but also socially.

The Early Years Foundation Stage themes are comprised of four complementary themes. They provide a context for the requirements and describe how nurseries should support the development, learning and care of young children. The four themes are as follows:

? A Unique Child

Principle: Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

? Positive Relationships

Principle: Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.

? Enabling Environments

Principle: The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning.

 ? Learning and Development

Principle: Children learn and develop in different ways and at different rates, and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected.

There are six areas of Learning and Development as follows:

            ?  Personal, social and emotional development,

            ?  Communication, language and literacy,

            ?  Mathematical development,

            ?  Knowledge and understanding of the world,

            ?  Physical development,

            ?  Creative development.

Whilst it is very important to prepare a child for the school curriculum, it is also important to remember that there are many facets to each child that need to be observed and encouraged. The EYFS is a very important part of how Royal Beach Nursery is conducting its care and learning framework.

Through EYFS and our constant evaluation of educational methods throughout Europe and the world, Royal Beach Nursery seeks to achieve the following with your children:

? Encourage language and communication with other children and adults,

? Teach children how to share and how to be part of a group,

? Offer each child the most suitable stimuli for his/her stage of development,

? Help children understand the basic concepts of mathematics including 
length, weight and volume,

? Teach children about their five senses and how to use them,

? Help children recognize and identify shapes, colours and sounds,

? Help children understand their body,

? Provide a greater understanding of other countries and different  
cultures,

? Teach children to respect themselves and others,

? Enable children’s skills and coordination to control writing tools and
basic literacy,

? Promote children’s interaction and compassion for others,

? Encourage children’s self-control

? Teach children how to express themselves appropriately,

? Allow each child to learn through play and fun activities.


ON THE FIRST DAY

Please make sure your child has all the things he/she needs for a successful school year.

What your child needs to bring to the nursery:

? 1 pair of trousers / any clothes for girls,

? 1 T-shirt,

? 1 pair of socks,

? 2 underwear

? diapers / wet wipes / cream (if your child is not yet potty trained)

We will be keeping the above items at the nursery for the children’s bathroom emergencies. Kindly make sure that all items are clearly labeled with your child’s name. If your child uses the items, please replace them promptly.

In addition to the above, please provide

? a lunch box and water bottle, also labeled with your child’s name.

For every child’s personal hygiene, we require a hand towel and one pack of wet wipes per month. Thank you!

 

ON A DAILY BASIS

Royal Beach Nursery is open throughout the year, from Saturday to Thursday, from 8 am to 8 pm. Our regular timings are from Sunday – Thursday, from 8 am till 12.30 pm. In addition, we offer late pick-up options at 3 pm and 5.30 pm. Later pick-up options are available upon request, since the nursery is open from 8 am till 8 pm. Daycare is offered on Saturdays as well. The fee structure is available from the administration.

Summer camps are available as well. Public holidays will be observed as per the announcement of the UAE government and the Ministry of Social Affairs.

Children thrive on routine and patterns. Our day is structured in a way that the children get used to a daily routine, which includes outdoor play, snack time, organized class activities, lunch and sleeping time. Please visit our website for detailed information regarding our daily program.


DISCIPLINE

At the beginning of the school year, our teachers take the time to train their students about school routines, about appropriate behavior and participation in class. They also introduce the “two Rs”: Respect and Responsibility. We want our students to be aware of how to treat each other and the materials they use in the nursery.

RULES

We need your support.

As educators, we are facing the responsibility and challenge of establishing and implementing rules in the nursery in order to

? provide a safe learning environment for your children,

? promote respect for the environment, for others and for oneself.

Children need to feel secure and happy, and they need structure and limits to know what is expected from them. They need as much consistency as possible. Although each family may have different rules and limits at home, it is important that those be the same for everyone while they are on school grounds. This consistency makes it easier for all children to understand what is expected from them when they enter the nursery now and in the future.

DROP OFF

Drop off time is from 8.00 am to 9.00 am. Please try to be timely to avoid class disruptions.

Research shows that the best way to handle separation anxiety is to establish a brief drop off routine. This routine may include an affirmation or kind word to your child, reminding him/her of your return, a brief good-bye hug, and a confident quick exit. Separation anxiety may occur (or re-occur) now and then. Our experience has shown that giving your child confidence is the best thing you can do for him/her.

We ask that parents do not stay in the classroom at the beginning of class. This can shorten instruction time, take the teacher’s focus off the children, and cause anxiety in other classmates. Please contact our administration to make an appointment if you wish to see your child’s teacher after class. You may write a note or send us an Email if you would like to discuss matters that would take more than a quick response.

PICK-UP

During pick-up, you are advised to wait in the reception area until your child is brought to you. It is disruptive to both children and teachers when a parent enters a classroom.

Please talk to your child’s teacher ahead of time, should you wish to observe your child in his/her classroom.

PARKING CONSIDERATION

Picking up and dropping off a child can be stressful for all parents if there is a lack of consideration for others. In the past, we have observed parents parking in a way that their car blocks others. Please make your pick-up and drop off as quickly as possible, and kindly treat others they way you would like to be treated.

SCHOOL DOORS

Please keep our children and staff members safe! All doors – indoors and outdoors – are to be kept closed at all times. Please make sure to close all doors and gates behind you whenever you enter or leave our premises.

LUNCH BUNCH

The Royal Beach Nursery does not provide food. Therefore, we ask you to prepare snacks and a lunch pack, should your child stay for lunch. Ideally, a lunch pack consists of carbohydrates, proteins, and fruits or vegetables. You may include a treat for your child, such as cookies or pudding. Please refrain from including candies and chocolates. Be aware that most sports drinks, such as Gatorade, are extremely high in sodium and sugar, and are not appropriate beverages for young children.

Each classroom has mineral water, and the teachers encourage their students to drink as often as possible.

 

PERSONAL TOYS

We kindly request that you please refrain from letting your child bring his/her personal toys to the nursery. It has happened in the past, that toys got lost or damaged, or that children did not let go of them during the entire day at the nursery, and subsequently were unable to participate in our activities.

On a different note: we welcome personal blankets, pillows, dolls, pacifiers,…anything your child needs to fall asleep during nap time.


NON-REIMBURSEMENT POLICY

Tuition is based on the annual school calendar. It is not subject to adjustment due to illness, vacation or absence from school.

No refunds and make-up days can be given if your child is ill or if you take your child on vacation. Should your child leave the nursery during the term, there will be no refund of the term fees. The Deposit is not refundable in cash – it must be deducted from the fees for the last term your child is registered in the nursery, provided that 1 month’s notice is given prior to the beginning of the term.


BABY-SITTING POLICY

It is a policy of Royal Beach Nursery that our teachers and nannies are not allowed to take care of your children before or after school, at night, on weekends, or during school vacation or holidays.


BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

We celebrate all children’s birthdays at the nursery. Please contact our administration, if you wish to contribute to your child’s birthday in the nursery (e.g. cake, decoration, etc.).

We provide our facilities (indoor and outdoor) for private birthday parties after 2 pm.

Should you wish to use the facilities of Royal Beach Nursery for your child’s private birthday parties with guests, kindly contact our administration to make the necessary arrangements.


OPEN DOOR POLICY

You are welcome to approach us anytime with your questions, concerns and/or suggestions.

Communication with you is very important to us, and we understand that you want to be informed about how your little one is spending his/her time at the nursery.

On a daily basis, our teachers write an online diary for every child. You may access these small reports via our website, and have the option to reply online. Upon registration you will be provided with a user ID and password.

Should you wish to speak to your child’s teacher, our administration is more than happy to arrange an appointment. You will understand that it is disruptive to both children and teachers when a parent enters a classroom.


HEALTH AND SAFETY

We need all our parents to be aware of the nursery’s health policy and kindly ask you to strictly comply to the following:

If your child shows any of the symptoms below, please do not bring him/her to the nursery:

            ?           Vomiting,

            ?           Diarrhea,

            ?           Constant ear or tooth ache, and

            ?           Fever.

Following a fever, your child’s temperature should be normal for 24 hours before he/she returns to the nursery. Do not bring your child in with a slight fever and/or after having given fever-depressants.

Should a child fall ill at the nursery, the following steps will be taken:

?The child will be taken out of the group and be seen by the nurse,

? Parents will be notified immediately and must pick up their child as soon as possible.

We do not administer any kind of medication unless instructed and authorized otherwise by one of the recognized guardians.

It is important that all parents follow our health policy and fill out the Health information Sheet that we give along with the Registration Forms.

If your child is or will be absent, please notify our administration as soon as possible. When you call, kindly leave the following information:

            ? Your child’s name,

            ? Symptoms he/she is experiencing,

            ? Any possible diagnosis (if you have already seen a doctor).

 

Allergies 

You need to inform the administration about any known allergies your child might have. If you need us to administer any kind of medication to your child, this information must be clearly mentioned on the Health Information Sheet.

Should any kind of previously unidentified allergy manifest itself during the course of the school year, parents have to inform our administration immediately.


In case of emergencies

The nursery is covered by a public liability insurance policy.

Parents who register their child in the nursery, are asked to accept and agree that, in case of any accident or injury, the nursery staff have full authority to take necessary action, if the parents cannot be reached at the emergency number(s) provided.
