Our Curriculum

We use the High-scope learning approach to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Foundation stage curriculum is divided up into seven areas of learning:

    • Personal, social and emotional development
    • Communication language
    • Mathematical development
    • Physical development
    • Literacy
    • Understanding the world
    • Expressive Arts and Design

High-scope Approach:

  • High scope is an early learning programme for pre-school children.
  • High scope is based on a balance between activities initiated by the child and those arranged by the adults.
  • High scope has several essential elements, these includes different stimulating environments, daily routines and active learning.
  • High scope approach is underpinned by child observations and recording.
  • High scope encourages Parent partnership in learning
