Curriculum

 

The curriculum is a general term for everything we want the children to learn about.  It is also the way we foster and encourage to develop their potential.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance which looks at the overall development of the children.  There are 3 characteristics of effective learning which are:

  • Playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things and 'have a go'
  • Active learning - children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulty, and enjoy achievements
  • Creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links betwen ideas and develop strategies for doing things

There are 7 identified areas of learning that shape the early education framework.  All these are important and are interconnected and divided into 2 levels - the prime areas and the specific areas

At Robert Owen we believe that like adults, children learn best when they are self motivated and interested. For young children, play is the child's work.
