Our Curriculum 2016-2017
We assess our curriculum by a traffic light system. Highlighted in Green are areas covered and that were successful. Areas in Blue where partially successful and areas in red failed. Our long term curriculum planning can be subject to change as we are also guided by the children's interests. The children guide us on what they like doing. In return we guide the children to include their interests into our planning and their play.
