Provision and the Early Years Curriculum. 

Our curriculum and practice is led by the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. We learn through seven key areas of learning which include:

Three Prime Areas:


Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Making Relationships, Self Confidence and Self Awareness and Managing Feelings and Behaviour


Physical Development: Moving and Handling and Health and Self Care


Communication and Language: Listening and Attention, Understanding and Speaking

Four Specific Areas:






Understanding of the World


Expressive Arts and Design


In our Preschool, we focus on the prime areas to promote independence and self confidence, this will then enable children to be successful in the specific areas of learning.

When  planning and guiding children’s activities, we reflect upon the different ways that children learn and includthese in our provision. The 3 Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning are:


Playing and exploring – engagement

Finding out and exploring

Playing with what they know

Being willing to have a go


Active learning – motivation

Being involved and concentrating

Keeping trying

Enjoying achieving what they set out to do

Creating and thinking critically – thinking

Having their own ideas

Making links

Choosing to do things
