The Areas of Learning and Development

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape educational programmes in Early Years settings. The children will work towards these until the end of their reception year.

All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.   At Pre-School and Nursery we are laying the foundations for children’s future learning through a balance of child initiated and adult initiated play. In addition to the activities we provide, we make visits to other places of interest to extend children’s experiences. We also invite various specialists and visitors into school to support our teaching and learning. Parents are always welcome to come into school and take part in their child’s learning and to share special skills they may have!
