At St. Charles’ the Nursery class follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS).  This curriculum is based upon four themes and principles.

Unique Child – Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.

Positive Relationships – Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Enabling Environments – Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.

Learning and Development – Children develop and learn in different ways.  The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
