Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with others, and the world around them.
Development is not an automatic process, it is dependent upon the child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments.
Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) combines four main principle themes to provide healthy and professional support of your child’s learning and development whilst with us in the Foundation Department at MIS.

Foundation students learn skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.
Students develop in 3 prime areas first. These are:
Communication and language;
Physical development;
Personal, social & emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for healthy development and future learning.
As students grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas.
These are:
​​​​​Literacy;
Mathematics;
Understanding the world;
Expressive arts & design.
These 7 areas are used to plan students learning and activities.
