​"Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world".

At Start-Rite school we use the EYFS based curriculum which covers seven key areas of learning. 


Children learn a whole lot more within a fun environment and through fun, interesting and attention grabbing activities. Our children are also taught through games and play.

At Start-Rite School, assessing children’s progress is important to development. Assessments are based on classroom observation, listening, paying attention, understanding and speaking.

The areas of learning are:

  • communication and language

  • physical development

  • personal, social and emotional development

  • literacy

  • mathematics

  • understanding the world

  • expressive arts and design

​Communication, Language
And Literacy Development


A child’s auditory, visual, listening skills and awareness of sound is refined. Imitation of sounds as well as recognition and association of sounds that helps  to groom writing also begins. Some activities include:


  • using one or two words to label objects

  • using one or two words to express needs and wants

  • reading books to encourage understanding

  • reading books to build interactions 

  • imitate reading behaviours like turning pages and babbling while looking at pictures

  • explore writing with scribbles on paper

Personal, Social and Emotional Development


We help children reinforce knowledge of self awareness and social skills by engaging in various discussions such as; self, family members and good behaviour whilst encourage playing in teams. To achieve this goal we promote:


  • increased interest in interacting with familiar adults

  • interest in interacting with other children

  • managing emotions independently or with the help of a familiar adult

  • observing and showing care when other children are upset and trying to help them feel  better


Physical Development and Wellness



We take children through the process of improved fine motor skills using dough, plasticine, sand, etc  to develop hand-eye coordination,  increase control , recognise and follow patterns of movement to aid thinking skills and develop independence. Some activities here will include:


  • learning to walk and starting to run

  • creating and playing games that involve throwing and kicking which aids physical development

  • hand gripping skills and control


Math / Cognitive Development



Children are taught to begin classifying different objects and practise grouping similar objects. This aids a child’s ability to know and spot similarities as well as build skills that refine the understanding of object permanence; Activities here will include:


  • counting and starting to identify one, two, or three objects

  • learning differences in size and volume

  • sorting  and classifying objects of different coloured toys

  • exploring and discovering new ways to play with toys


Expressive Arts and Design



Imagination, sound and a world of individualised creativity and expression. We achieve this by:

  • using art materials like crayons and clay

  • entering the world of make believe with simple props like toy phones and puppets

  • interacting with music through games and simple songs

Understanding the world

The world is about people, science and objects. Children, both boys and girls are encouraged to explore and understand nature such as plants and the green house as well as the world of animals.
