Early Years’ Curriculum

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum

We believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life, helping them to develop into happy, confident, sociable, and independent young people. At St Swithun’s Sunbeams Pre-School we achieve this by working closely with parents/carers to ensure tailored care and education for each child, guided by their own unique set of experiences, interests, and needs. We embrace individuality, equality, and diversity; we value every child and their family, thus promoting a culture of respect, confidence, and positive self-esteem.

We work under the umbrella of the national Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS, 2016), which is guided by four themes:

A Unique Child

Every child is a unique, competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident & self- assured


Positive Relationships

Children learn to be strong & independent from a base of loving & secure relationships with parents and/or a key person


Enabling Environments

The environment plays a key role in supporting & extending children’s development and learning


Children learn and develop in different ways & at different rates

The EYFS framework covers the education & care of all children in early years’ provision, including children with special educational needs & disabilities
