Our Early Years Curriculum

There is no formal teaching in the School, but this does not mean we are not   teaching your child. The children are free to choose from a wide range of activities, with the staff working alongside them, to support and extend their learning.

Some of these activitieswill be adult-initiated, based on close observations of the children's needs and interests. Others will arise through the spontaneous engagement of the children with the School’s resources, supported and extended through sensitive interaction with the staff.

 Through continuous dialogue and involvement with parents, experiences in the home and the School can be shared and built upon.

We cannot transmit our mature perspectives directly. However,  you (as your child’s first and continuing educator) and we (as trained early years educators ) can observe, support, and extend your child’s learning.

We are very aware of the different stages of development that children go through during their time at the School. We plan the curriculum for all children to meet individual needs. We try to be very alert to the particular needs of our youngest children. We want to ensure they have as broad a range of experiences as the older children, but offered in ways appropriate to their needs and ways of learning.  

We start from where each child is - if your child has already made considerable progress we aim to build on that, within a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.
