IEYC Accreditation and Self-Review

All IEYC members receive a Self-Review tool to guide you through implementation of the IEYC and help you define and improve the quality of your teaching. The results of the review can be fed into your nursery's improvement plans and into the evidence you gather for external reviews and inspections.

We also offer a formal accreditation process that provides an external view of your setting’s implementation of our curriculum and can lead to the award of an externally validated mark of quality.

Although children’s interests have always been part of our approach to learning, the IEYC makes it very explicit that Capturing Curiosity should be central to how themes are developed. We have responded to this by creating ‘learning spaces’ where children can develop their own ideas and interest - this helps ensure that enquiry-based learning can take place every day.”
