The Early Years team at NAISAK is committed to ensuring children are curious, creative, and ambitious, in a stimulating child-centered environment. This approach allows them to become global citizens, building positive relationships and embracing the world around them.
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that
enables them to fulfil their potential.”
EYFS Framework 2021
At NAISAK we follow the statutory EYFS framework, which has recently been reviewed and is used within all UK Ofsted registered settings. These new changes focus on the learning journey through EYFS and on ensuring improved outcomes for 5-year-olds as they transition to Year 1.
A key focus embedded within the new framework is the strengthening of language and vocabulary development for all children across all areas of learning. In EYFS we pride ourselves on offering children a fantastic communication tool, Makaton, which enables children to rapidly develop new vocabulary within the correct context. This is used throughout the day within play and guided sessions.
Children are at the center of all that we do at NAISAK, and we have created a unique, bespoke curriculum which offers a range of learning opportunities that promote the development of skills. At the forefront of this is play, which acts as a catalyst for active learning. We believe experiences created through play, and the love of reading promoted by inspiring books, allows children to explore a world beyond, and prompts children to ask those important questions creating new big ideas.
The holistic nature of learning in EYFS allows children to be exposed to a range of lifelong skills-based activities such as woodwork, cooking, sewing, dance, and music. These and other exciting out of school experiences allow them to immerse themselves within our community and locality.
