CurriculumWe believe in the concept of lifelong learning and that both adults and children learn things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone and, most importantly it should be fun, helping us to give children secure foundations on which future learning can be built. The Early Years Foundation Stage is about developing key learning skills i.e. concentrating, listening, co-operation and early communication, physical, literacy and numeracy skills. Children are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities every day. Our motto is: ‘There is no such thing as unsuitable weather, only unsuitable clothing’. There are seven areas of learning and development, which are divided into Prime and Specific areas.
Prime areas – 22 to 36 mths
- Personal, Social and Emotional
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
Specific areas – 36 mths to 5 yrs
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
