All the children in the Early Years Department follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). There are seven areas of learning which include three prime and four specific areas:-
- Communication & Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Expressive Arts and Design
- Understanding the World
In both Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten classes pre-reading, writing and number activities are covered and the children are helped to discover and investigate through art, craft and environmental activities.
Specialist teaching in a number of areas greatly enhances the curriculum. We use the seven national Early Learning Goals as the basic level and enrich the children’s experiences through a range of other activities including weekly Dance, French, ICT, Music and PE lessons together with assemblies, performances, trips and outings.
