Through community groups and home visiting, the Canterbury & District Early Years Project seeks to enhance the development and education of children by providing a range of services and resources which support both children and parents.

Through their initiative “Every Child Matters”, the Government’s aim is for every child, whatever their background or circumstances, to have the support they need to…

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic wellbeing

DSCF1127Canterbury & District Early Years Project plans it’s services to help children achieve these outcomes.

Staff have awareness and knowledge of the Birth to Three Matters framework, a guidance document of good practice to support practitioners working with children from birth to three.

It takes as its focus the child and steers away from subjects, specific areas of experience and distinct curriculum headings. It identifies four Aspects, which celebrate the skill and competence of babies and young children and highlights the interrelationship between growth, learning, development and the environment in which they are cared for and educated.

P1010175These four Aspects are…
  • A Strong Child
  • A Skilful Communicator
  • A Competent Learner
  • A Healthy Child
