The Curriculum 

At Eynesbury we value the importance of learning through play and in particular through child initiated learning which follows the children's interests. The Pre-School uses Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage to plan a broad and balanced curriculum. Children take part in a range of playful activities, which focus on intellectual, creative, social and emotional development. Some activities are adult led and some are child led.


Children learn new skills, gain knowledge and show understanding through the seven areas of learning and development. The prime areas are Personal Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. As children grow the prime areas help them develop skills in the four specific areas of Literacy, Numeracy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.



All children in Pre-School have their learning experiences recorded on 'Tapestry,' an online learning journal. When staff complete an observation on a child, it is then uploaded to their journal, often with photos or videos for parents and children to enjoy. Parents receive a notification on their phone or by email and they can then comment on their child's achievement. We also encourage parents to add photos and descriptions of exciting events that have happened at home which help us to work together to create an amazing diary of the child's time in Pre-School.
