EYFS Curriculum

The Nursery follows a ‘Creative Curriculum’ alongside the rest of the school.

Children will be encouraged to take part in a range of activities to promote learning in the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. These are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Activities are planned to enable children to follow their interests and ideas and to participate in a broad and balanced range of activities linked to the EYFS Curriculum. Children are encouraged to develop their learning and understanding through their play and to have fun in a safe and stimulating environment.
