EYFS FRAMEWORK & CURRICULUM
Our education programme takes into consideration the individual needs of every child allowing them to grow at their own pace. We encourage them to make decisions and share ideas, letting their imagination and interests take the lead.
Children learn most effectively when they are enjoying themselves and are having fun. Hence, we promote ‘Learning through Play’ as children of different ages and stages of development work towards different goals. Children play individually and as a part of a group which helps them develop self-confidence and social skills.
The curriculum is delivered through child-initiated and teacher-led activities. There are seven areas of learning that shape the educational programmes based on the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework.
The core areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.
In this area of learning, children learn communication, speaking and listening skills and develop a love of stories, books, and skills for future reading and writing.
In this area of learning which is fundamental to everything young children do, children develop through play. We provide opportunities for children to be active and interactive and to develop their coordination, contact, movement and manipulation, for example, riding a toy tractor, organising the play farm, or rolling out some play dough.
In this area of learning which focusses on emotional wellbeing, children learn about who they are, how and where they fit in, and learn to feel good and confident about themselves. They also develop an understanding of and respect for others, social competence, and a willingness to learn.
As your child grows, we ensure that the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas of learning given below.
In this area of learning, children are given access to a wide range of books and reading materials including short stories and poems to develop their interests within this area.
In this area of learning, children learn counting, sorting, matching, pairing, seeking patterns, making connections, working with shapes, space, volume, and developing appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
In this area of learning, children develop crucial knowledge, skills and understanding which help them make sense of the world. This forms the foundation for later work in science, design and technology, geography, history, and ICT which they study in school.
In this area which is creative learning, children make connections between different things and people, through our incorporation of art, music, dance and movement (to music), role play and drama, and imaginative play.
These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and development. We ensure that all the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs. Children learn by playing and exploring, and being active.
They develop key skills such as creative and critical thinking, the ability to express themselves, work with others, and learn and understand.
