Here at Emneth we benefit from having our own personalised curriculum, built upon strong Early Years principles that we hold in high esteem. Our curriculum is designed to focus upon the idea of building life long skills in children and giving them what they need to go on to be confident learners in the future. Our approach is play based and child centred where learning is seamless, fun and exciting. Our staff skilfully play alongside the children to develop their thinking and knowledge and then plan subsequent experiences that will deepen their understanding. We adopt principles heavily influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach, with creativity at the forefront of our work. The learning environment is set up to create 'beautiful' experiences for children that allow them to explore, reflect and question. The adults work together as co-learners developing thoughts and ideas through projects led by children, guided by adults. Outdoors we develop Forest Schools practice where children are given responsibility to develop new skills and learn how to take managed risks. Indoors and outdoors are given equal learning value as we recognise children learn best in many different ways.
we believe that these principles are crucial and influence all aspects of future achievements in our children;
