Curriculum

Aims and Objectives

Pixies aims to nurture our children’s deep desire to learn, to experiment, to socialise and to gain independence. The curriculum we follow is The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is designed to cover 7 areas of learning. It consists of 3 prime areas which are: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, and Physical Development. It is seen that these 3 areas are the most important areas from birth and build the roots for the rest of a child’s learning.

There are also 4 specific areas which are: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. These 4 specific areas strengthen the prime areas and help us to implement the prime areas within a nursery setting. All these 7 areas are inter-connected.

The wide and varied range of activities we offer provides our children with not only a basic grounding in numbers and letters, but a wealth of learning experiences, allowing them to progress to their next stage of education with a sense of achievement and confidence. All our activities are designed to cover more than just one area of the curriculum at any one time and ensure that every child gets a chance to achieve in every area.

Emphasis is placed on the development of every child’s self-esteem and independence, and they are strongly encouraged to be kind and caring to one another in a positive and nurturing environment. Children work and play together in a happy, relaxed and positive atmosphere in which encouragement abounds and the surroundings are colourful, attractive and adaptable.
