Early Years Curriculum

Our early years setting follows the curriculum as outlined in the 2017 statutory framework of the EYFS. The EYFS framework includes 7 areas of learning and development that are equally important and inter-connected.

However, 3 areas known as the prime areas are seen as particularly important for igniting curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building children’s capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

The prime areas are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development


The prime areas are strengthened and applied through 4 specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design
