The Early Year Foundation Stage Curriculum
The English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum sets the standards for the learning, development and care of your child in our Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception classrooms.
The EYFS has a large number of learning outcomes which most children are expected to reach on ‘graduation’ from Reception. These are split into seven main areas of learning; Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
The pedagogy behind the Early Years means that our learning time is fluid and adaptable on a daily (or even hourly) basis depending on the focus of the children and a teacher’s target learning for the day. Assessment of a child’s progress towards Early Learning Goals (ELGs) happens continually throughout each day allowing learning for the following days to be adapted as necessary. Our children reach ELGs in both Mandarin and English as part of our specialised Dual Language Programme.
