Our Curriculum

Our Setting

Laughing Lions (2-12 Months)

Our Laughing Lions room offers a perfect introduction to the Centre. It is a bright, cheerful and stimulating environment which enables babies to follow their own development. The Baby Room is specifically designed to cater for very young babies (2-12 Months) and is tailored to their needs.

Blossoming Butterflies (1-2 Years)

We take toddlers into the blossoming Butterflies room at the age of 1 year and they are with us until they turn 2. This room is set-up to cater for the very specific needs of your toddlers.

Giggling Giraffes (2-3 Years)

Children in this phase are full of energy and need careful support. They walk, they talk, and they begin to develop relationships with each other.

Eager Elephants (3+ Years)

When you visit the Eager Elephants room you will find it colorfully stimulating and attractive. Your child’s love for learning is an innate attribute as is being praised and achieving.

Perfect Pandas (4-5 Years)

Within our Perfect Pandas Class we aim to make every child feel secure, safe and happy and have the opportunities to reach their full potential.

Early Learning Goals

From the ages of 02 months to 6 years all children at Little Pandas Early Learning Centre follow the Early Years Foundation Stage – the National Curriculum of England for all children from birth until they go into Primary School.

This in turn prepares the children and feeds into the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1 – which is covered in the Reception Class at Primary School.The Early Learning Goals are a series of aims within six areas of a child’s development and learning.

  • Personal, social and emotional development, which focuses on the children learning how to work, play share and become more independent in a group other than the family unit

PSED

  • Communication, language and literacy – this covers developing skills in speaking, listening, writing and reading as well as communication with one another.

CLL

  • Mathematical development, using ideas relating to numbers, measurement, quantity, shape and space in order to gain basic mathematical skills.

NOCSB

  • Knowledge and understanding of the created world, where children investigate and begin to understand the things, places and people around them.
  • Physical development, relating to improving control and coordination of their bodies.

PDGMS

  • Creative development, where children find ways to communicate using colour, shape, sound, texture, movement and stories.

CDFMSSTP

  • Although the structured and formal part of your child’s day is important we give the unstructured and informal part, such as meal times, talking to each other, and outside play, just as much importance, because during this time your child is continuously learning.

 

Pre-School Learning

Your child will have the opportunity to experience a number of varying stimuli. These will include:

  • Play in a secure environment as a member of a group
  • Express their own feelings
  • Begin to share and care
  • Begin to understand what is right from wrong
  • Become confident and have a positive self-image
  • Enjoy making things
  • Test and try their own ideas with different equipment to see how they work
