EYFS Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage applies to children from birth to the end of the reception year. Practitioners working with the youngest children in Nursery will focus strongly the three prime areas which are the basis for successful learning in the other four specific areas. The balance will shift towards a more equal focus on all areas of learning as the children move through Foundation Stage and grow in confidence and ability within the three prime areas. Prime Areas: Personal, Social and Emotional Development Communication and Language Physical Development Specific Areas: Literacy Mathematics Understanding the World Expressive arts and design

The Early Years Foundation Stage is based upon guiding principles:
