Sunshine Montessori logo  Curriculum

Sunshine Montessori Nursery follows the requirements of The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) developed by the Department for Education. This sets out both the regulatory and legal framework for early childhood education and care, together with wider guidance for “best practice”. It provides a coherent and flexible approach to care and learning and must be followed by all childcare providers in receipt of government funding.


Supporting the EYFS Framework

Our daily plans allow for access to activities to promote the seven areas of learning identified in the EYFS framework. These areas together make up the skills, knowledge and experiences appropriate for babies and children as they grow, learn and develop:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematical Development
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Understanding of the World

We provide these learning opportunities in both our indoor and outdoor play areas, through the use of our messy play areas, creative and problem-solving activities and concentrated one-to-one learning opportunities.

We follow the children’s interests and support the development of their ideas. We also provide activities around topics such as ‘All about me’, the seasons, festivals, celebrations and holidays.
