Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is made up of seven areas of learning that are defined as Prime or Specific areas. The Prime areas of learning and development are fundamental, work together, and begin to develop in response to relationships and experiences. They continue to underpin learning throughout the EYFS. The three Prime areas of learning and development are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development

The specific areas grow from the Prime areas to provide contexts for learning. Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to engage with and participate in society. The specific areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
