In our Early Years, we implement the Early Years Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. We support children to learn and develop by teaching, encouraging, and promoting all aspects of development across the seven areas of learning
· Communication and Language Development
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development
· Physical Development
· Literacy Development
· Mathematical Development
· Expressive Arts and Design
· Understanding the World
We ensure the characteristics of effective learning are embedded within the environment. These are
· Playing and exploring
· Active Learning
· Creativity and Critical Thinking
A vital aspect in the development of essential knowledge and skills is the use of continuous provision. Children are using and developing taught skills throughout the year on a daily basis. We provide enhancement opportunities linked to our topics within the provision to engage learners.
Challenges are provided to support and encourage independence and therefore allows children to take ownership of their own learning. Children access adult directed activities alongside the continuous provision where adults teach particular skills and knowledge taken from the development matters. A high-quality, balanced curriculum to provided for all children accessing our Early Years.
