Here at Frittenden we are privileged to provide children with a rich ‘learning through play’ environment. Our sessions develop children’s love of learning through building independence, curiosity, problem solving and thinking skills by following the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The aspects of learning & development
There are 7 areas of learning and development which are divided into 3 prime and 4 specific areas; these aspects are covered in your child’s profile.

Prime Areas
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Physical Development
Communication and Language

Specific Areas
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design

Every Child matters

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)  framework  is based around these four themes:
A Unique Child
Positive Relationships
Enabling Environments
Learning and Development

These in turn are linked to the Every Child Matters outcomes which are:
Being Healthy
Staying Safe
Enjoying & Achieving
Making a positive contribution
Economic well-being

By allowing children to learn through their play, listening and acting on children’s needs and interests we are able to incorporate the EYFS curriculum into our daily routine. Children can speak about and develop their ideas, learn new vocabulary and skills, learn to listen and respect other people and really enjoy their learning.
