The Early Years Foundation Stage
Play underpins the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we believe children learn best through practical, hands-on experiences and interactions with their environment. Play provides opportunities for children to consolidate and extend their skills, and supports physical, emotional, intellectual and social development.
"Well planned play, both indoors and outdoors, is a key way in which young children learn with enjoyment and challenge." (EYFS)
We develop children to:
Be confident and independent
Make and learn from mistakes
Communicate effectively with others
Imagine and recreate roles and experiences
The 7 Areas of Learning
The Early Years Foundation Stage is split into 7 areas of learning.
The 3 Prime Areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Mathematics - Number and Shape, Space and Measures
Literacy - Reading and Writing
