Early Years Foundation Stage (Age 3 - 5)
Active learning through play and experimental investigation is an essential basis for effective education at every stage. Our world-class educators plan for and create stimulating environments that facilitate learning through capitalising on the children’s interests.
The children are encouraged to lead their own learning, and as such, the organisation of space, materials, and people is designed to support this independence.
Learning provision is planned to promote each skill in communication, creativity, and problem-solving. Within the day-to-day life of the classroom, there is a carefully considered schedule, which provides a framework for planning.
Children learn to make decisions, ask questions and reflect on their own learning. Careful observations of the children’s development allow the teachers to make informed judgments about the learning taking place and possible next steps, to plan relevant, challenging, and motivating experiences for each child. Throughout the day, teachers will prepare and facilitate activities to encourage skills and knowledge in all seven areas of learning, in order for children to achieve the 17 Early Learning Goals at the end of Foundation Stage 2.
