Shining Stars Curriculum
As a British owned early childhood centre, Shining Stars adheres to the standards and framework set by the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.
Seven Areas of Learning and development are included in multiple interactive learning and fun activities such as story-telling, dancing, singing and art. This is based on self-directed activities, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. “Tell me I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin.
In simpler terms, learning by doing is of utmost importance. Our initial innovated approach towards learning results in ensuring that every child masters the given concepts at their own pace, while enjoying all aspects of the learning process.
Seven Areas of Learning
This framework sets out specific aims and learning goals for pre-school education. This framework concentrates on seven areas of learning and development, which are as follows:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
This area helps to shape children’s social skills and develops respect and an understanding of their different feelings.
Communication and Language
Providing an environment for young children to express themselves and speak and listen in a range of situations allows them to develop their language and communication skills.
It’s important for children to discover phonemic awareness – the ability to hear and identify different words and sounds, and also to start reading and writing.
Problem Solving and Reasoning
Children need to be guided in developing skills with numbers and calculations, as well as being able to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.
Knowledge & Understanding of the World
This involves children making sense of things by observing and exploring everything from the places they spend time to the technology and other things that they use.
We all know that young children often love to be active, but they also need to understand that continued physical activity as well as healthy food choices are important, and why.
Creative Development Personal
Activities like drawing, playing with paint, instruments or technology all give children the chance to express themselves and learn new things.
