Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to ensure that when our parents choose Learning Spaces Nursery, they can be confident that their child will receive a quality experience that supports their development and learning.
There are four overarching principles of the EYFS, which shape our practice;
- Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self- assured.
- Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
- Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents/carers.
- Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
The EYFS has seven areas of development and learning;
|Personal, Social and Emotional Development||Making relationships|
|Self-confidence and self-awareness|
|Managing feelings and behaviour|
|Physical Development||Moving and handling|
|Health and self-care|
|Communication and Language||Listening and attention|
|Shape, space and measure|
|Understanding the World||People and communities|
|Expressive Arts and Design||Exploring and using media and materials|
We support children whose first language is Arabic with a full time qualified Arabic teacher, she will provide the children with Arabic studies, Arabic stories and poems, local cultural awareness and celebrate National Traditions and Celebrations. We can also offer children an additional language of Spanish and French.
