Early Years Curriculum

Our Pre-School comes under the EYFS umbrella. We aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which is both differentiated and based on the girls’ needs, interests and level of development. We ensure our curriculum is exciting while offering an appropriate level of challenge to the girls. Our curriculum addresses the girls’ social, emotional, physical, intellectual, moral and cultural development within a safe, secure and stimulating environment. It also enables the girls to develop skills, attitudes and understanding in all the seven inter-connected areas of learning. All areas are of equal importance.

The Prime Areas of Learning

  • Communication and Language;
  • Physical Development;
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

The Specific Areas of Learning

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the World;
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

We aim to give our girls both independent and adult led learning experiences across all of our learning environments – indoor and outdoor. This enables them to be active, explore and think creatively, working towards Early Learning Goals and preparing them for the National Curriculum.

At Maltman’s Green we value mindsets, skills and attitudes that we believe are invaluable in helping our girls become independent thinkers and learners, as well as preparing them for the future.

We also provide enrichment experiences through specialist teaching and either a school trip, outing or special visitor every term. Parents are both encouraged and welcomed into our classes throughout the year to address the girls. Examples of what our parents share include details of their culture, religious beliefs (during different festivals, for example), their experiences of the world or details of their career.
