In Pre- School we follow the EYFS Framework which explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development. Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.


There are 3 Prime areas:

 Communication and language (C&L)

Physical development (PD)

Personal, social and emotional development (PSED)

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.


As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are: 

Literacy (LR) and (LW)

Mathematics (M)

Understanding the world (UW)

Expressive arts and design (EAD)

These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities.

In Pre- School we teach and support your child by ensuring that the activities we plan are suited to your child’s unique needs and interests. 

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.
