A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
At Honey Bee Nursery Dubai, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). The EYFS curriculum is a British framework that provides standards and expectations for the development of children. The EYFS curriculum promotes teaching and learning to prepare children forschool readiness by giving the children a diverse range of knowledge, experiences andskills that provide a strong foundation for future learning and school life.
There are seven areas of development in EYFS. All areas are equally important and dependent on each other.
Personal Social and Emotional Development is an important area of the EYFS which 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 behavior in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities
Communication and Language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing them selves in English; and to speak and listen in a range of situations. As we are a Dubai based nursery, we also offer Arabic class.
Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children will also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.
Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children will 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.
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.
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.
