Curriculum

Our curriculum is a well researched, integrated and International Early Childhood Curriculum. We adapt the UK Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework, which sets the standards for the development, learning and care of children from birth to five. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s holistic development, ‘school readiness’ and also gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

 

Our curriculum content is based on the objectives and early learning goals indicated in the Development Matters of the Early Year Foundation stage (EYFS) framework. We support these objectives with themes from the well researched Scholastic Early Childhood Curriculum and we also incorporate the best of the Nigerian content to ensure that our children turn out to be globally relevant and also very much in tune with their culture.

The children in this group basically learn through playing and exploring, with focus on the Prime areas of learning, which are the fundamentals on which future learning is based.

In this class, children start learning to develop positive relationships with others as they separate from parents or main caregivers; feel safe and secure with other adults as they gradually become a part of a small group.
