Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum
Early Years Foundation Stage is a safe and happy place to learn, work and play. In partnership with families the team are fully committed to providing an engaging and enriching curriculum. Children are guided on a nurturing journey enabling them to become more confident, inquisitive, imaginative and empathetic learners.
The Early Years Statutory Framework specifies the requirements for learning and development in the Early Years and it is organised into seven areas of learning and development:
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development
· Physical Development
· Communication and Language development
· Understanding the World
· Expressive Arts and Design
Through a well organised, stimulating environment, the children will organise their own play and will demonstrate positive characteristics of effective learning – playing and exploring (engagement), active learning (motivation) and creating and thinking critically (thinking).
