The Early Years Foundation Stage
Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Curriculum known as the EYFS. The curriculum tracks children's progress from babies right up until they start National Curriculum in school. The EYFS has 7 Areas of Learning and Development which include 3 Prime areas and 4 Specific areas.
Prime Areas of Learning - The Prime areas of learning are 'time sensitive' which means that if the children are not making progress we refer them for support to other professionals eg, Speech and Language Therapists or Occupational Therapists.
Specific Areas of Learning - The Specific areas of learning are Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Children are supported to learn knowledge and skills within these areas through a wide variety of exciting activities.
