Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum as promulgated by the Ministry for Education in England and Wales. The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is, in itself, based on four themes:

Each theme is linked to an important principle:

The EYFS is based on principles of ‘inclusion’ which means that Early Year Care providers oppose discrimination and prejudice and welcome all families and children. They provide care and education for a wide range of children in a controlled environment. This enables children to feel safe and supported – thus helping their Learning and Development.
Having said this all the main emphasis is on FUN with regular story times, free play opportunities, arts and crafts activities and musical sessions. Lots of things done at nursery will be messy because tactile sensations are so important at this stage. We will do our best to maintain cleanliness at all times but we can’t always promise that your child will be perfectly clean when you fetch him/her in the afternoon! Playing is hard work, and if a little dirt is spread around, it’s all in a good cause!
