Ok - I'm not hyperventilating, or panicking, or going over my paperwork with a toothpick. Really, I'm not.. well, ok, maybe a little.
Nervous because I temper EYFS with waldorf philosophy - and in some ways the two approaches are not that compatiable. EYFS is much more hands on, adult led and pushing a child to reach goals and using play as a tool to achieve those goals. In Waldorf there is less pressure and play is celebrated for it's own sake and not just as a tool for education. I haven't read all the steiner books, direct or inspired that exist -but so far I've not come across the phrase "purposeful play", which is discussed in EYFS. And regardless of my personal feelings toward EYFS, it is statutory that I deliver it.
Time will tell, as to what she thinks of the childcare and what recommendations she makes for improvements.
Oh, and that reminds me, I need to look into this self assessment tool now too - blah.
Right, off I go.
