The Early Years Curriculum at Crown House

At Crown House School we follow the EYFS National Curriculum.  The EYFS seeks to provide a secure foundation in an environment where parents and teachers work in partnership together in a setting where every child is included and supported.

There are four overarching principles that shape practise in early years settings which are:

  • that every child is unique
  • that child should learn to be independent through positive relationships
  • that enabling environments should support children to learn and develop
  • that there is an understanding that children learn and develop at different rates.

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape the educational programmes in early years’ settings. The three prime areas of: communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving.  The further four specific areas of: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design further strengthen the children’s learning and development.

At Crown House School we are very proud of the progress our pupils make in every aspect of the EFYS curriculum.
