Foundation Stage Curriculum

Foundation Stage Curriculum

Children in the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception classes) are taught within each of the seven learning areas identified in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile Handbook. These are:

The Prime Areas of Learning

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Specific Areas of Learning

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The children learn through carefully planned and structured topic-based activities. This allows them to play and explore at their own level of understanding, whilst being actively encouraged to become increasingly independent and able to develop and transfer all the basic skills across each of the subject areas.

Their progress is carefully tracked and recorded in their own individual Foundation Stage Profile.
