Early Years Foundation Stage
We feel that enjoyable and interesting experiences are the key to positive attitudes towards learning, so the emphasis is on learning through play.
A wide range of toys and resources are available to encourage the children to reach their full potential. Observations of the children are undertaken during their play to enable the staff to plan activities based on their interests and to widen their knowledge.
Our daily activities are based on the 4 themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum namely, a "Unique Child", "Positive Relationships", "Enabling Environment" and "Physical Development", and cover the 7 areas of learning which are divided into two distinct areas:
Prime Areas of Learning
Communication, language and literacy
Personal, social and emotional development
Specific Areas of Learning
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
By covering these we aim to achieve the following Every Child Matters outcomes:
Enjoying and achieving
Making positive contributions
Our aim is to promote a learning environment both indoors and outdoors to give children the ability to go on the next stage confidently when it is time for them to leave for "big school".
