We follow the Early Years Statutory Framework (EYFS) and cover the 7 areas of learning.
Infants (3 months – 2 years)
At this stage in a child’s life, they rely on learning through their five senses, using their hands to explore their surroundings. They begin to develop trust, begin to socialise through smiling. As they begin to communicate their needs, children develop self-confidence, they begin to understand that words have meaning and people will respond to their sounds. Physical movement consists of sitting, crawling and learning to transfer things from one hand to another.
Toddlers ( 2-3 years)
At this age, children explore their environment more and are increasingly purposeful to find the meaning in events, objects and words as they attempt to discover how the world around them works. They develop a sense of identity and self and begin to realise their own individuality. They understand the power of words and the importance of written words and develop a vocabulary. Children are learning as they discover through physical development. Self confidence develops as motor skills become better. Children enjoy repetition such as dumping and filling and eye co- ordination is developing.
Pre-schoolers (3-5 years)
Go beyond academics to promote social and emotional development, creativity, and positive approaches to learning while encouraging a preschooler’s playfulness. Compliance with the curriculum of EYFS helps children achieve the readiness skills needed for school.
