Spring Fields Nurseries and Preschools follow the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.
The curriculum was designed by the English government to provide a solid framework for practitioners. It is an integrated approach to learning and is a curriculum that is designed specifically for children aged 0 to 5 to learn the skills that they are capable of.
Following the guidelines within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the Birth to Three Matters, we are committed to ensuring that we comply with the learning and development goals by ensuring a strong delivery of the curriculum.
Children are active learners and that learning primarily takes place through play. The curriculum was composed with that philosophy in mind. It provides children with the opportunity to develop emotionally, socially, physically and cognitively. The progress is monitored according to the children’s individual needs and abilities, as the curriculum states that ‘Every Child is Unique’
There are seven areas covered by the early learning goals, which are split into 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas.
