Their Future in Our Hands
Children are active learners, eager to discover and interact with people who share their lives. At Pavilion Preparatory School and Kindergarten our aim is to support each child’s natural curiosity by providing a wide range of experiences, combined with plenty of positive interactions with well-trained practitioners.
Through our daily curriculum each child experiences exposure to a wide range of learning experiences such as sand and water play, arts and crafts, music and dance, circle time, reading, IT, numeracy, role play, physical activity and much more.
Within our normal day we incorporate into our curriculum the seven areas of learning via the early year’s foundation stage framework in order to support each child’s individual learning, welfare and development requirements.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage including the Seven Areas of Learning:
Communication and Language:
Giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
Providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children are assisted to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development:
Helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.
Encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
Providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.
Understanding the World:
Guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
Expressive Arts and Design:
Enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
Through the above seven area’s we hope to explore each and every child’s individual journey whilst observing and supporting every milestone throughout their education.
