The Early Years at MISY places an emphasis on gaining developmentally appropriate skills and habits. By making crafts, developing fine and gross motor skills, and playing games, children gain a foundational understanding of the world around them.
Children are encouraged to work independently and also in groups, so that they can develop their confidence, self-assurance, and social skills. The Nursery and Reception curriculum follows the English National Curriculum statutory skills and objectives.
The areas of development that we emphazie are:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
Reception-aged students participate in the Key Stage 1 phonics and graded reaading programmes.
