Our Nursery Curriculum
Yellow Brick Road Nursery is dedicated to taking extra special care of all your preschooler's early learning needs. We realize each child is special and we will help and encourage your child to learn and develop.
The preschool classes for the children aged three and four years complete very important preschool learning programs and skills which give the children the understanding and the recognition of phonic sounds, counting and also recognizing numbers, quantities, colour and shapes; plus pre-reading and pre-writing programs such as writing their own names and recognizing the same.
British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
A Unique Child - recognises that every child is a unique child who is consistently learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Positive Relationships - describes how children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Enabling Environments - describes how children learn well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.
Learning and Development - recognises that children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
Embedded within the principles of the EYFS are seven areas of Early Learning – How do we put these into practice?
How we incorporate the Montessori methods…
* We teach self-reliance and independence. This teaching method helps the children become independent by teaching him or her life skills, which is called practical life. Montessori children learn to dress themselves, help cook, put their toys and clothes away and take an active part in their household, neighbourhood and school.
* For young children Montessori is a hands on approach to learning. It encourages children to develop their observation skills by doing many types of activities. These activities include use of the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and large motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge that leads to later abstraction.
* In a Montessori environment, the teacher prepares and presents the materials needed for the child to carry out his/her great work, and offers them to the child in the form of individual or small group presentations. Once an initial presentation or lesson has been given the activities are freely chosen and frequently repeated according to a child's needs.
