Early Years Foundation Stage
We believe that children learn best through first hand experiences and by using their senses. We provide a range of activities that are interesting, enjoyable, challenging and fun! Children are encouraged to explore, experiment, question, investigate, discover, create, practise and consolidate their developing understanding, knowledge and skills.
The Early Years Foundation Stage principles are designed to celebrate the importance of play and learning by putting the child back at the heart of Early Years practice.
The EYFS curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning, three Prime Areas and four Specific Areas. The Prime Areas of Learning and Development ensure that the children learn and develop key life skills and these are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
The Specific Areas of Learning and Development are:
- Mathematical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts & Design
Child-initiated learning is at the heart of our practice and we ensure that the children are a key part of our planning process. We observe their play and plan around their interests.
