Early Years Curriculum

The children develop through playing, exploring, active learning, creating, and thinking critically. There are 7 areas of learning which are divided into the:

Prime Areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development,
  • Communication and Language,
  • Physical Development and

Specific areas:

  • Literacy,
  • Maths, 
  • Understanding the World,
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

The prime areas are fundamental throughout the EYFS, and the specific areas include the skills and knowledge which provide important contexts for learning, and they develop more fully towards the end of the early years. The children carry out many practical experiences through which they are encouraged to explore and experiment.

The children use both the indoor and outdoor classroom during teacher-directed and child-initiated times. We love outdoor learning and come rain or shine, we explore and play outside in our outdoor environment.

To learn more about our Curriculum in the Nursery, have a look at our Nursery Overview.

We use the EYFS statutory framework and ‘Development Matters’ to guide our learning. Our EYFS Curriculum goals are what we would like the children to aspire to become and achieve by the end of their time with us. We provide a thorough and vast range of experiences that actively encourage child-initiated, purposeful learning to help inspire this. 

     

  Starting Nursery

Starting nursery is a big step for most children. That’s why we think settling-in is really important. The time you spend helping your child to settle in will really benefit them in the long run – it will mean your child will be happier, more confident, and learn better and enjoy nursery more.

We start children slowly, so they can get lots of support and attention. We do not want them to have a bad first experience of school. Different children will settle in at different rates.

The absolute minimum amount of time you need to stay and help to settle your child will be 3 sessions. Most children need more than this – some a lot more.

During the home visit and the nursery meeting, we will ask you some questions about your child and their health and development. This information will help us to settle your child in, and help us to make sure we meet your child’s needs in nursery.
