“Early Years are where the foundations for future learning and development are laid.”
Early Years Curriculum
Early Years Foundation Stage is for children aged 3-5 year. It is where the foundations for future learning and development are laid. We therefore create a happy, stimulating and caring environment which fosters creativity, exploration and initiative.
Our programme is based on the UK Early Years curriculum, which we adapt to meet the needs of our particular community and environment. We also take inspiration from Reggio Emilia and Forest School approaches. You can read more about the Early Years curriculum here:
The main points are that: every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured; children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships; children learn and develop well in enabling environments with teaching and support from adults, who respond to their individual interests and needs and help them to build their learning over time; Children develop and learn at different rates.
