We developed Cambridge Early Years in collaboration with trusted early years experts, so it reflects the very latest educational thinking.
Our approach is built around these key principles:
We believe in giving Cambridge schools the power to shape their curriculum around how they want students to learn.
Children should be involved in their own learning through well-planned experiences that help them develop competence, agency, emotional attachment and self-worth.
Learning should encourage a balance of physical, cognitive, language and communications, and social and emotional development.
Learning should be age appropriate, play-based and child centred. It should include both child- and adult-led activities.
Early years education should help children transition successfully to primary school, moving from informal, play-based learning to teaching that is more formal.
