EYFS - Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (18 months-5 years)

The Early Years Foundation Stage framework leads to the British National Curriculum. We focus on a series of achievements and objectives, around which our themes and activities are structured.

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape our foundation educational programmes in Kids’ Academy. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

1. Communication & Language

  • To experience a rich language environment

  • To develop confidence and skills in expressing themselves

  • To speak and listen in a range of situations

2. Physical Development

  • To be active and interactive

  • To develop co-ordination, control and movement

  • To understand the importance of physical activity

  • To make healthy choices in terms of food

3. Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • To develop a positive sense of themselves, and others

  • To form positive relationships and develop respect for others

  • To develop social skills & learn how to manage their feelings

  • To understand appropriate behavior in groups

  • To have confidence in their own abilities


Kids’ Academy also supports children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

1. Literacy

  • To link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write

  • To ignite their interest in a wide range of reading materials

2. Mathematics

  • To develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers

  • To calculate simple addition and subtraction problems

  • To describe shapes, spaces and measures

3. Understanding the World

  • To explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment

4. Expressive Arts & Design

  • To enable them to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials

  • To provide opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings

  • To provide a range of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design & technology
