Our Early Years curriculum is carefully planned to make sure that all children thrive and achieve. There are seven areas of learning and development that must be covered in Early Years settings. Three areas are particularly crucial for building their capacity to learn. These areas (the prime areas) are:
Personal, Social and Emotional development;
Communication and Language and
These are the three areas we focus on when planning activities and focus tasks for the children.
We aim to support each child to identify their own sense of identity and self - worth, as well as focusing on each and every child's individual needs and interests.
