Welcome to Busy Bees Pre-School, Salisbury



  The Early Years Foundation stage curriculum aims to provide:

  •     Quality and consistency for all early years settings, enabling all children to make good progress
  •     A secure foundation through careful planning for the learning and development of each child, and assessing and reviewing their progress            along the way 
  •     Partnership working between early years settings and parents
  •     Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practise, to ensure inclusion and support for all children

  4 specific areas- through which the prime areas are strengthened and applied

   Characteristics of Learning

       Learning how to learn! The characteristics of effective learning are behaviours which must be developed to enable children to          become effective learners. We are aiming for children who are self- motivated, have the courage to try something new, to be            able to concentrate and persist at challenges, to have their own ideas and solve problems.

       Playing and exploring; this area is all about engaging with others, objects and environments.

       Active Learning; This area is all about being motivated to engage in play and learning

       Creating and thinking critically; this area is all about promoting children’s thinking skills.
