Our Curriculum

We use a key person system, with each child assigned to a member of staff who can then get to know them, and you, in greater depth and so tailor activities specially for them.

Each day children will work individually, in pairs or groups with their key person who will record observations to use in planning further activities. We want children to have the opportunity to learn through direct experience, using their senses as a means of exploring so that they develop confidence in their own ability to make sense of the world.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) covers 6 main areas:

 

  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development
  • Communication, Language & Literacy
  • Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development
