Premier works to design a curriculum that is fun, purposeful, balanced and broad, so that your child has a thoroughly enjoyable time with us whilst naturally learning through their experiences. We structure our activities to ensure that we are continuously responding to your child's individual needs and providing opportunities for them to develop their skills in all areas of the curriculum.
We recognise that every child is an individual and therefore, we celebrate what each child can do rather than focusing on what they cannot. This approach builds the children's self esteem and gives them the confidence to explore and try out new ways of doing things.
We have designed our curriculum to encompass all the six areas of learning for the Early Years Foundation Stage identified by the Department for Education. Our lesson plans are carefully developed to ensure a varied, balanced mix of the six areas:
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication, Language and Literacy
- Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
- Physical Development
- Creative Development.
These areas are the introductory stage of the National Curriculum, which your child will continue to follow throughout their school years.
Our teams work in a supportive, childcentred way, so that the children enjoy their early learning experience, setting in place strong foundations for their future education and beyond. During their time with us, your child will build up an individual record of their work, supported by one-to-one time with their key carer. This will form the basis of their child profile forms, which we will complete prior to them starting reception class.
