curriculum

Parents can be confident that, by choosing Royal Kids Nursery, their child will receive the very best in early childhood education, delivered by qualified professionals to world-class standards.

Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is the statutory framework for schools in England. This sets standards for the learning, care and development of children from birth to 4 years old.

There are four overarching principles of the EYFS, which shapes our practice:

Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self- assured.

Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.

Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early year’s provision, including children with additional needs.

 Learning through play is at the center of our curriculum and we pride ourselves on creating a child-centered environment, with children learning through self-discovery, games, interacting with others and exploring their own creativity. Teaching is centered on a series of cross-curricula themes that have been selected to interest children. Each theme lasts 4 weeks, and is explored from numerous different angles to incorporate the 7 Learning Focus Areas.

 

EYFS

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a preschool education framework established by the British Government, it was launched in 2002, and has been recently updated. The EYFS program has seven primary focus areas.

Personal, Social and Emotional development -We encourage children to become independent and self-confident, and make positive relationships with their peers and adults. Successful personal, social and emotional development is critical for young children for success in all other areas of learning and development.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World-Young children are inquisitive to find out more and more about the world they live in and the people they encounter. Children at Royal Kids Nursery are encouraged to explore and investigate materials and to question how things work. This area of learning and development forms the foundation for later work in science, design and technology, history, geography, and information and communication technology (ICT).

Creative development / Visual / Spatial -Creativity is fundamental to successful learning. We give our children opportunities to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through art, music, movement, dance, imaginative and role play activities.
