We use the guidance ‘Development Matters’ as our underpinning guidance. We also have our own curricular goals, which are developed around our current cohort and based on skills they will need for when they start school.

Our curriculum goals 

By the end of the child’s Preschool year, they will be able to: 

  • Understand and be able to identify a range of emotions. 
  • Take turns with peers and be able to share resources fairly. 
  • Sit and listen to a short story as part of a small group.
  • Be independent in toileting and self-care skills. 
  • Recognise their own name and start to write the first letter of their own name. 
  • Be confident with ‘number and count’ objects up to 5. 
  • Have an understanding of change e.g. the life cycle of a plant and an animal, and how materials can change in different conditions. 
  • Use imaginative skills to create models using blocks or construction bricks.
