Curriculum Information

The Early Years Foundation stage curriculum provides a framework containing 7 areas of learning and a set of  guiding principles. The curriculum as a whole reflects the belief that every child is a unique individual who can learn and develop through positive relationships and enabling environments.


Personal Social  and Emotional Development

Children learn to feel confident in their own strengths and abilities. They learn to manage their feelings and share play with their friends, showing respect and kindness to others.


Communication and Language

The Children have the opportunity to experience a language rich environment to help develop vocabulary and fluency.A child who can speak clearly and confidently will do well in school.


Physical Development

The Children have the opportunity to be active and develop their coordination,control and movement. They are   encouraged to learn vital self-help skills and the importance of healthy lifestyles.



The Children take part in story time every day to develop their knowledge and love of books in readiness for learning to read independently. They learn to retell stories and rhymes using actions, props and role play. The children are taught to link sounds and letters using a structured approach proven to be effective in teaching early reading skills. The children will begin to 'write' by making marks that carry meaning.We provide lots of opportunity to develop hand strength and hand/eye coordination. This ensures our children have the physical skills needed to develop their drawing and  writing.



The children have the opportunity to develop early maths skills in counting,estimating,problem solving and number recognition. They will also learn to describe properties of shapes and patterns.


Understanding the world 

Children celebrate special times and learn about traditions around the world. They learn to make 

  sense of their environment and community through exploration, observation and technology.


Expressive arts and design

Children take part in art,music,dance, role play and design technology projects. They have the opportunity to express their ideas,feelings and make choices from a range of media.
