Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
The Foundation stage is divided into seven areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Art and Design
All seven areas of the curriculum are connected.
We value that every child is different. We aim to develop his/her own individual skills, knowledge and independence.
Children take part in a balance of self chosen activities and adult led activities. Sometimes working by themselves, as part of a group or as a whole class. All activities are carefully designed to enable all children to make progress in all areas of learning. Learning through play is particularly important.
The school day
8.50 Start of the day
10.20-10.40 Break time

Throughout the days the class will have a mixture of adult lead activities in small groups, stories, carpet time and the opportunity to learn through play both indoor and outdoor. They will also have assemblies daily.
