Our curriculum is …………………….. What we provide to support development.

“The Child is the Curriculum” – No linear development as it is a journey unique to them.

Following the Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) (Statutory framework), alongside the Birth to Five Matters (non-statutory framework) using ‘future focuses’ that allow all children to learn following play and interests, with our expanding inputs. Children and adults construct the curriculum together, allowing time to listen to children’s voices. We believe each unique child is an active agent of their own development.
