Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum Follows EYFS Learning

Our curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. The EYFS sets the national standard for the care, learning and development of babies and children up to the age of five.

Although EYFS sounds very formal, it actually focuses on learning through play. It allows our team to support your child’s learning and development with inspirational activities that are tailored to their unique likes and interests. It also helps us work in partnership with parents to ensure our children are socially, emotionally, academically and physically ready when it’s time to go to school.
