Education For Everyone



Here at Early Learning Childcare, we encourage children to learn by making it fun. Our activities help to teach children to be more confident, self assured, independent and build relationships. 

We understand that all children are unique and benefit from learning in different ways, therefore we provide a variety of teaching techniques to ensure all children are treated fairly and given the best learning experience possible. These techniques include playing and exploring, active learning and critical thinking. 

We use the guidance from the Department for Education and Skills known as The Early Years Foundation Stage’ to enable the children, through their interests, to develop their knowledge and skills. 

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance divides children’s learning and development into six areas: 


Communication and language development

Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations


Physical development

Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food


Personal, social and emotional development

Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop 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 appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities


Literacy development

Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest



Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measure.


Understanding the world

Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment


Expressive arts and design

Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
