Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge,
and wisdom in all children."
- Ever Garrison

The Early Years curriculum is compulsory in all child care settings and comprises developmental programmes in seven areas of learning.

  • These seven areas include three prime areas these are:
  • Communication and Language,
  • Physical Development,
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • The specific areas of learning include:
  • Literacy,
  • Mathematics,
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The prime areas are the essential foundations for learning which if supported and developed well will allow all children to access fully a wide range of learning experiences which will prepare them fully for school life. It is our intention at Wolstanton Kindergarten to ensure that all children make the best progress and we will shape our learning experiences to respond to the interests of our children. We also value the contribution that parents make to their child's learning and would encourage you to share your childs interests and developments at home so that we might use this to develop their learning further.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is built upon four priniciples which underpins all of the practise at Wolstanton Kindergarten.

  • We value every child as Unique.
  • We endeavour to provide an Enabling Environment allowing children to access resources of interest both inside and out.
  • All staff, pupils and parents develop extremely Positive Relationships and this is a key strength of our nursery.
  • Learning and Development is at the heart of everything that we do, we want the best for every single child in our care and we ensure that highly qualified committed staff provide well planned play based learning experiences to achieve this.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principles are designed to celebrate the importance of play and learning, by putting the child back at the heart of early years practice. This philosophy is in perfect harmony with Wolstanton Kindergarten and we look forward to providing the best for you and your child.
