With an in depth knowledge of each unique child and strong partnerships with parents and families, we can foster the skills that will support their future learning in life.
We encourage the children to become independent, capable and confident by observing how the children learn as well as what they can do. We use the children’s own interests to motivate and engage the children in active and investigate play. We value the exploration of learning and the development of questioning skills and resilience.
Through our planning we focus initially on the prime areas of learning–
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
As the children move through the Early Years Foundation Stage these prime areas are extended to include the specific areas –
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
Our staff plan for a range of experiences and opportunities that allow the children to explore their feelings and responsibilities. We reflect on and celebrate the differences in our community and teach that we are free to have differences of opinions and that these should be respected.
