An Early Year’s pedagogy

Our creative and thematic projects are based on the Four Cornerstones of learning Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. They are perfect for developing the EYFS characteristics of effective learning: Playing and Exploring, Active Learning, Creating and Thinking Critically.

Early Learning Goals

The Cornerstones EYFS Curriculum is carefully designed to enable children to practise and master the necessary skills needed to achieve the Early Learning Goals. Each activity is matched to the EYFS ‘Typical Behaviours’ and the corresponding Early Learning Goals and skills.

Enhanced Provision

Ideas for enhanced provision are identified in each ILP. Linked to teacher led activities, these provide opportunities for children to further explore and consolidate their skills and interests.

Easy planning

Our copy and paste facility enables you to copy and paste project plans straight into your own planning. A range of long and short term planning templates are also available on The Hub.

Bespoke quality resources

Enjoy teaching using quality videos, presentations, picture cards and display banners. The curriculum also includes an easy to use pupil tracking and coding documentation.
