Early Year Foundation Stage at Handcross

   

At Handcross, we recognise that children develop faster in the first years of their lives than at any other time. We want to ensure a smooth, happy and successful transition from pre-school to full-time education by working in partnership with parents to ensure the children have the best start possible to school.

We aim to develop the children personally, socially and emotionally by providing a safe, happy, stimulating environment. Planned and well structured play activities form a very important part of the reception year and are the key way for children to learn with enjoyment and challenge. 

Our Early Years curriculum consists of three prime areas of learning:

  1. Personal, social and emotional development

  2. Communication and language

  3. Physical development

And four specific areas. These are:

  1. Literacy

  2. Mathematics

  3. Understanding the World

  4. Expressive Arts and Design

These seven areas are taught through topics which offer a range of experiences and opportunities through an active, play -  based curriculum using both the indoor and outdoor classrooms. Please see our new starter booklet below for more information.
