The Early Years Curriculum

The Nursery uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum that is the statutory curriculum for all children from birth to 5 years, provided by the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

 

The Curriculum is divided into three Prime Areas - Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; Communication And Language and four Specific areas - Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; Expressive Arts and Design.

 

Each area provides expectations for a child's development within specific age brackets culminating in an early learning goal. Staff use the curriculum to help trace each child's progress throughout their time in Nursery. Children work towards being able to achieve these early learning goals by the end of their reception year in school.
