Behaviour in the Early Years Foundation StageIn this section...
Behaviour in the Early Years Foundation Stage In order to support children to build positive relationships with peers and adults in the Early Foundation Stage, we have five key rules that are followed. These rules reflect and support the whole school approach, including the core values of Care, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
The five key rules are:
1. Walk carefully
2. Look after our toys
3. Listen to others
4. Be kind to everyone
5. Take turns and share
Other strategies used in this phase:
• We encourage positive choices and positive interactions by rewarding children using stickers and constant praise.
• In Nursery, children may be given time out to think about their actions – they are provided with support to help solve any difficulties.
• We have a behaviour display of a rainbow, sun, thinking cloud and stormy cloud. This is used to reward children for their positive choices and help them to consider their inappropriate actions.
• We encourage parents/carers to talk about these rules with their children.
