Early Years

The Early Years Foundation Stage covers Pre-Prep, Prep and Reception. Our high standards in teaching support children’s early developments in building the foundations at this very important stage of their lives. We want our children in the Early Years to have very positive first experiences of school where they will build and develop a love of learning that will help them succeed as children and adults.

The areas of learning and development in EYFS

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which has seven areas of learning and development, fundamental for early education and growth.

All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three prime areas are: 
  • communication and language; 
  • physical development; and 
  • personal, social and emotional development. 
We also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are  strengthened and applied. The specific areas are: 
  • literacy; 
  • mathematics; 
  • understanding the world; and 
  • expressive arts and design.
