COVID 19

Happy Days is committed to providing a safe and secure environment. We have taken time to consider the necessary steps in line with government guidance to keep children, staff and the wider community safe during the Coronavirus pandemic. We will keep parents and carers updated with the latest information and changing guidance.

Whilst we will ensure that we are COVID-19 safe and secure, we will also be encouraging parents to make informed decisions on whether to send your child or not. If your child has a cough or is displaying any symptoms of Coronavirus, please do not send them to pre-school. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact me.

The Prevent Duty became law in 2015. This is a duty on all schools and registered Early Years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism. We take the responsibility seriously and all staff undertake the relevant training to support the latest government advice.

At Happy Days we encourage the children to make decisions, understand and value rules, enjoy freedom and treat others as you would like to be treated.

Curriculum

At Happy Days we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework which sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old.

Children develop quickly in the early years, and early years practitioners aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life. Children have a right, spelled out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child,
to provision which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family
background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender. This guidance helps adults to understand and support each individual child’s development pathway.
