OVERVIEW OF THE EARLY YEARS
Our Early Years curriculum, Smiling Minds and Busy Hands is designed to incorporate latest research that ensures excellence in early education, and aims to equip young children with the best possible start in school life and develop a lifelong love of learning. The highest quality educational experiences provided to children help them blossom as bright, independent minds, and help them to acquire the dispositions, skills and knowledge to thrive in their future learning.
It offers a ‘window of opportunity’ to all children during their early stages of learning by tapping children’s imagination and inquisitiveness through active play and engagement that drives a child’s desire to learn.
Children’s welfare and personal development is at the heart of our Early Years curriculum. Our welcoming and stimulating learning environment encourages children to be physically active and exuberant, offering children different perspectives in learning which act as a catalyst for them to thrive without fear of failure.
Our settings are places of adventure, growth and learning, provoking curiosity and imagination, and constantly challenging children’s thinking. Our aim is to support children’s natural interests, eagerness to learn and their love of communication with others.
Making the most of a young child’s enthusiasm for communication and discovery, a range of experiential and project-based learning is planned through the seven areas of learning, where skills of language, numeracy, inquiry and technology are developed through play, conversation, stories, rhymes, games and outdoor experiences.
