Welcome to Early Years
Play is the highest form of research
A Unique Child
Every child is unique, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. Emphasis is based on children learning through play with a good balance of child-initiated and focus activities.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents.
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
