Our Curriculum

Although we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage 2021, we have created our own set of goals that we feel are important and that we would like our children to learn and experience during their time with us.

You can download these to read below.

We will soon be uploading a chart showing a breakdown sequence of how we expect our different aged children to reach these goals.

This will be uploaded soon.

Parental Expectations

We understand that parents have different expectations of their children when they attend our Pre-school. Our staff have  good knowledge and understanding of developmental milestones and realistic expectations of each child to help our children make progress. 

Expectations can be a positive way to promote children's development as long as they are realistic and are attuned to children's interests, tendencies and their temperament. If parents expectations are set too high for the age and stage of their child then children will fail resulting in disappointed parents and children having low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. 
For more information, please read this article: 

Please find a copy of the 'What to Expect When' guide for parents, to help you gain a better understanding of what  to expect from your child's development for their age and stage.

'My First Five Years' Website and App

The 'My First Five Years' App allows parents to access information to help parents to understand, enhance and track their child's development.
The app was founded by Early Childhood Experts Jennie Johns MBE and Alistair Bryce-Clegg who have supported and empowered a vast number of parents to give their children the best start in life.
You can find out more information on their website below and sign up for a Free 14 day trial.

They also have a Facebook page providing lots of advice, podcasts and helpful videos.

You are more than welcome to talk to our staff about your child's development, developmental milestones and the importance of having realistic expectations for your children. 

We are happy to help you.
