Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

EYFS, or the Early Years Foundation Stage, is not just a curriculum for us at Green Grass Nursery. it’s the very core of our educational philosophy. We are deeply committed to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment for children in Dubai, and the EYFS British Curriculum guides us in achieving this goal. As a leading institution in early childhood education, we believe in more than just teaching – we believe in laying a strong, holistic foundation for children’s educational journey.

Our commitment to fostering holistic development means that children learn and grow at their own unique pace, preparing them for a successful transition to formal schooling and beyond. The EYFS framework encompasses seven essential areas of learning and development, each thoughtfully designed to ensure a well-rounded foundation:

the Early Years Foundation Stage Areas

Early Years Foundation Stage Areas

  • Communication and Language: We nurture language and communication through stories, songs, and role-play, with an extensive library and interactive activities enriching vocabulary.
  • Physical Development: We encourage an active lifestyle with games, sports, and an outdoor area featuring swings, slides, and climbing structures. Yoga and dance enhance coordination.
  • Personal, Social, and Emotional Development: In our warm environment, children build self-esteem and social skills, learning conflict resolution and teamwork.
  • Literacy: We lay the reading and writing foundation with engaging stories, rhymes, and songs, exploring alphabets, letter sounds, and sight words.
  • Mathematics: Through games, puzzles, and hands-on activities, children delve into numbers, shapes, patterns, and problem-solving.
  • Understanding the World: Exploration, investigation, and hands-on learning expand horizons, with field trips and activities like cooking, gardening, and science experiments.
  • Expressive Arts and Design: Creativity flourishes through art, music, and dance in our dedicated studios and diverse dance classes.

By starting with EYFS as our cornerstone, we ensure that children not only excel academically but also develop into well-rounded individuals who are curious, confident, and equipped to navigate the complexities of the modern world. At Green Grass Nursery, we are proud to embrace the EYFS framework and provide a nurturing, inspiring, and holistic learning environment for the children of Dubai, shaping the leaders of tomorrow.”
