Children begin their learning journey in the Foundation Stage (age 2 to 5 years) where we follow the statutory EYFS guidance for curriculum planning based around our children’s interests.
The 3 prime areas of learning are
Personal, Social and Emotional development.
Communication and Language.
The 4 specific areas are
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design.
Our children learn by actively exploring their indoor and outdoor environments that are enriched with resources to support their learning and develop their creativity and critical thinking. Visits and visitors play an important role in developing first hand learning experiences.
Children are observed, assessed and their next steps of learning planned. This information is shared with parents on a half termly basis. At the end of Foundation Stage 2, each child is assessed against the Early Learning Goals and an EYFS profile is completed and shared with parents
