Why Visit Eddie Catz?
Areas of Learning and Development we cover
Eddie Catz offers excellent facilities in which children can enjoy physical activity or just a fun day out and develop other skills needed in life – social, risk taking, and judgement as well as creative and educational. Our facilities support four key elements of the Areas of Learning and Development within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
- Interacting with other children in a safe, yet stimulating environment aids their Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Exploring their environment helps to build their self-confidence and self-esteem and encourages behavioural development and self-control.
- The play facilities encourage exploration and investigation and develops Knowledge and Understanding of the World around. Exploring space and movement is a major part of the Eddie Catz experience.
- The play frame and sports area are designed to help the Physical Development of all children. Using the equipment and materials available creates a fun way for the children to develop their movement and space co-ordination. The different levels allow each child, whatever their ability, to develop at their own pace.
- First and foremost Eddie Catz is a space where children can let their imagination run wild. Imaginative play is a core foundation of Creative Play and the Eddie Catz team can support individual sessions within our studios, as well as within the play frame environment.
At Eddie Catz we know that ‘Every Child Matters’. We provide an Enabling Environment, which can support your pre-school or group environment. Through the Learning and Development framework we have created, we can help the children build Positive Relationships. We know that each child visiting our facility is A Unique Child and we ensure that each has a unique experience.
