Our EYFS curriculum aims to make a child’s first experience at Kings Road happy, positive and fun. We foster a love of learning and develop enquiring minds through promoting our Kings Road Values. We instil the Characteristics of Effective Learning such as independence, resilience and confidence. We build positive relationships and work in partnership with families (recognising that parents are their child’s first and foremost educator), carers and professionals to support every child to develop and learn. We have high expectations of all pupils and for pupils to have high expectations of themselves.
Our curriculum is based on first hand experiences and high quality purposeful interactions. We value play and recognise that, for young children, play is a vital tool for learning. Adults in the setting support and extend play, with a particular focus on developing language and communication. We ensure that there is an excellent environment (indoor and outdoor) for learning and teaching and well planned and appropriate educational programmes provide rich, imaginative experiences that meet the needs of all children. Staff take into account the individual needs, interests, and stage of development of each child in their care, and use this information to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience.
