“The work of education is divided between the teacher and the environment”

EYFS

At St Georges we follow the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS), a government framework for learning, development and care of children from birth to five. Its purpose is to provide all children with the best possible learning opportunities and experiences to help each child reach their full potential. This will ensure your child is ready for school when they leave St George’s. It is a child- centred approach to learning.

The EYFS is grouped into three prime areas and four specific areas of learning as follows:

    PRIME AREAS:
  • – Communication and Language
  • – Physical Development
  • – Personal, social and Emotional
    SPECIFIC AREAS:
  • – Literacy
  • – Mathematics
  • – Understanding of the World
  • – Expressive Arts and Design
