At Canterbury School we aim to provide children in Early Years Foundation Stage with creative educational experiences that will help them develop a positive approach to learning and enjoy coming to school. By providing a learning environment where children feel at home, they will be more willing to explore new concepts and ideas and build firm foundations for their future learning. Independence, a sense of responsibility and respect for others, and self-discipline are encouraged from the beginning. In the Early Years Foundation Stage children work through each of the seven areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts & Design.
