At Little Gems all of our learning takes place through play on a daily basis in both our indoor and outdoor learning environments! The School follows the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, a model of early learning designed to nurture a child at this crucial developmental age. The curriculum inspires creativity and confidence in children and fosters curiosity, questioning and effective communication skills.
The curriculum, which is based on three prime areas, including Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development is applied in the areas of Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Our Philosophy of “Learning Through Play” helps your child develop cognitive, critical thinking and motor skills, whilst allowing them to be independent and spontaneous. Learning Through Play supports positive self-esteem, problem solving, conflict resolution, social skills and a host of other developmental benefits that will provide the foundation for your Childs’ happiness and success.
