In the Early Years at TEA we believe that learning should be an enjoyable experience in which our children are able to investigate, create, discover, problem solve and consolidate their skills and understanding. Our team strives to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, providing fun, interactive and learning environments for each and every child. Our children learn how to be great learners!
In KG and Reception, we follow the EYFS Framework.
The Foundation Stage curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning. All areas of learning and development are important and interconnected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting your child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:
Communication and language;
Physical development; and
Personal, Social and Emotional development.
We will also support your child in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The professionals teaching and supporting your child will ensure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs. This is a little bit like a curriculum in primary and secondary schools, but it's suitable for very young children, and it's designed to be really flexible so that staff can follow your child's unique needs and interests. Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both in the classroom and outside playing areas.
