Early Years Curriculum

All Nursery and Reception children fall within The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is the stage of education for children from birth to the end of their Reception Year. It is based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning. We embrace this philosophy and sees this as an important aspect of a child’s overall learning.

The four themes and principles of the EYFS describe the conditions necessary for life-long, life-wide learning and apply equally to learners of all ages.

 

Every child is a competent learner from birth, who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. 

Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. 

The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.

Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.
