Foundation 1 Curriculum

We believe that children learn best through play and follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. This focusses on the three prime areas of learning most essential for children’s readiness for future learning and healthy development. The prime areas are:  Communication and Language;  Physical Development;  Personal, Social and Emotional Development. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Children learn by playing, exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both indoors and outdoors.
