The Early Years Curriculum
In nursery we follow the Early Years Curriculum. The curriculum is made up of three prime areas (Communication and language, Physical development and Personal, social, emotional development) and four specific areas (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design). Each week activities are planned so that children can achieve across all areas.

 

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

This area of learning involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups and to have confidence in their own abilities.

Communication and Language:

This area of learning is about children having opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Physical Development: 

Development in the foundation stage is about improving skills of co-ordination, control, manipulation and movement. Children also learn how to make healthy choices in relation to food and exercise.

Literacy 

This involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
