How We Learn


Our Pre- primary Curriculum is based on the guidelines given by NCERT that sets out children’s learning and development in their foundation stage.  It is broadly based on the knowledge, skills and understanding that provides children with the right foundation to make good progress through school and life.

Our Fundamental Principles

  • Unique Child: Every child is a competent learner who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive Relationships: Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of secure relationships with parents, teachers and other children.
  • Enabling Environments: A well planned environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.
  • Learning and Development: Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and are interconnected.

Thecurriculum is centred on children learning through play and their first hand experiences. It is delivered across seven distinct areas of learning which are subdivided into the Prime and the Specific. These areas develop the children’s key skills, knowledge and understanding which are built upon as they progress to more formal education.

Prime Areas of Learning

To ensure children are able to work and play safely, we expect them to:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

    We support children in developing a positive sense of themselves and others, to form positive relationships and develop respect for others, to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, to understand and to demonstrate appropriate behaviour and to have confidence in their own abilities.

  • Communication and Language

    Children are given opportunities to experience a rich language environment, to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves and to listen, understand and speak in a range of situations.

  • Physical Development

    Children are provided with a wealth of opportunities to be active and interactive and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children begin to understand the importance of physical activity, and in making healthy choices in relation to food.

Specific Areas of Learning

  • English/Literacy

    Children are taught to link sounds and letters and begin to develop their reading and writing skills through a variety of activities. They are introduced to a wide range of books, labels and captions designed to capture their interest and ignite their enthusiasm for reading and writing

  • Mathematics
  • Children are engaged in activities which develop their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers and describing shapes, spaces, and measures.
  • Understanding the World

    We support and guide children to make sense of their natural world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

  • Expressive Arts and Design

    Children are encouraged to experiment and play with a wide range of media and materials as well as having opportunities for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
