Early Years Curriculum

Pre reception and Reception Curriculum: Our curriculum is delivered using a play-based approach as outlined by the EYFS. We plan for meaningful play through a mix of adult led and child initiated activities. During play our practitioners interact to challenge and extend children further. We create stimulating environments where children can choose to engage with planned learning activities or can independently access resources to use in their own play or exploration. The children have whole group and small group learning sessions which increase as they progress through EYFS and in accordance with the needs of the children. Phonics lessons are taught daily from Pre-Reception using a combination of Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds. We focus on 3 primary and four specific areas of learning:

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

and

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts & Design
