Our EYFS Curriculum
At Under5, we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing a comprehensive Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. This curriculum serves as the cornerstone of our educational philosophy, designed to nurture every aspect of a child's development.
Embedded within our EYFS Curriculum is the Montessori philosophy, emphasizing self-directed learning, hands-on exploration, and fostering independence. We recognize that each child is a unique learner, and our curriculum embraces this individuality by tailoring activities that cater to diverse learning styles.
Multiple Intelligences Theory/Approach:
Our curriculum draws inspiration from the Multiple Intelligences Theory, acknowledging that intelligence is multi-faceted. We celebrate the diversity of talents and abilities among our students, providing opportunities for the development of linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, musical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic intelligences.
Jolly Phonics Technique:
A key component of our approach to literacy is the incorporation of the Jolly Phonics technique. This phonics program employs a systematic and engaging method to teach children how to read and write. By making learning phonics enjoyable through songs, actions, and stories, we instill a love for language and set the foundation for strong literacy skills.
In essence, our EYFS Curriculum is not just an academic guide; it's a blueprint for holistic development. It intertwines educational theories, proven techniques, and a child-centric philosophy to create an environment where young minds flourish, discover their strengths, and build a robust foundation for lifelong learning.
