Early Years

Our Early years programme is designed for children between the age of 3 to 6 and is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework for England. The EYFS framework sets the nationwide standard for the learning and development of children under 5 for all early year providers in the UK.

By following the EYFS framework, parents can be confident that all children undergoing this curriculum will be ready for Year 1. The EYFS framework places importance on developing literacy and numeracy from an early age to prepare them for life in school.

The EYFS categorises learning into Prime areas of learning and Specific areas of learning.

 

Prime Areas of Learning


Communication and Language Development

Our early years programme aims to develop children’s confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.


Physical Development

At Inspiros, we aim to provide opportunities for children to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. It is also important for us that they begin to understand the importance of physical activity and healthy food.


Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We aim to help children form positive relationships and a respect for each other. In line with the EYFS framework, we also develop social skills to guide how children behave in groups. At Inspiros, it is also important to us that children have confidence in their own ability and learn to manage their own feelings.



 

Specific Areas of Learning


Literacy

At Inspiros, our extensive library provides children with an array of reading materials to ignite their interest in language. We aim to help children link letters with sounds with the ultimate goal of developing their reading and writing capability.


Mathematics

Our Early years programme encourages children to develop their skills in counting, using numbers and calculating simple addition and subtraction problems.

Understanding the World

We at Inspiros believe in the importance of children understanding the world around them. To this end, we endeavour to provide children opportunities to experience and explore the world around them.


Expressive Arts and Design

At Inspiros, we encourage creative expression thoughts and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, dance, role-play and design and technology.
