At Effra we follow the curriculum as outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) document which can be downloaded here. This clearly defines what we teach.
The EYFS framework includes seven areas of learning and development, all of which are seen as important and interconnected but three areas are seen as particularly important for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, for building their capacity to learn and form relationships and thrive they support children’s learning in all other areas. They are known as the prime areas.
The prime areas begin to develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences, and run through and support learning in all other areas. The prime areas continue to be fundamental throughout the EYFS.
