Over the past few years there have been many studies that have shown the positive benefits of adding technology to learning activities in schools. We also believe in the benefits of giving younger children opportunities to promote their learning and development through our interactive education technology which works alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage.
What is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) ?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
The prime areas of learning in the first 3 years are:
1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development
2. Physical Development
3. Communication and Language Development
The specific areas of learning are literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world, expressive arts and design. Our Educational resources and software support these key areas whilst also incorporating the EYFS. We have recently completed a huge project which included, design, development and installation of children’s interactive education technology for a children’s nursery in Dubai. The technology included interactive walls and floors, bespoke multi touch-tables, augmented reality, interactive storyboards and interactive educational activities. Over the next few articles we will be sharing in more detail key features of the technology and explaining the benefits to children’s learning and development.
