At Early Explorers Nursery, we follow the EYFS curriculum:
- The EYFS curriculum is designed and based on the philosophy of learning through play. ‘Play’ is planned purposefully, enhancing and building essential learning skills such as critical thinking, risk-taking, social development and creative skills which are the foundations of life-long learners.
- Children play an active role in shaping and enhancing their learning experiences through child-initiated activities and topics/projects. This leads to high levels of involvement which in-turn leads to higher levels of learning for the child.
- All our staff are fully qualified early years practitioners.
