EYFS Curriculum

The quality of education is 'OUTSTANDING'

- ISI Inspection (2020)

At The Ryleys Nursery, Pre-School and Pre-Reception, we educate and nurture the whole child by following the EYFS Framework as guidance. Each day, the seven areas of learning will be incorporated into a range of exciting and appropriately challenging, every-day play activities.

The 7 areas of learning are as follows:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Understanding The World


Specialist Teaching

Each and every day, the children enjoy some form of specialist teaching. This includes: 

  •  French
  •  Music
  •  Stretch-n-Grow
  •  Mini Sports
  •  Swimming (Pre-Reception only)
  •  Forest School 
  •  Baby Sensory 
  •  Dance 
  •  P.E. 


Specialist teaching starts right from when your child enters the Nursery, Pre-School and Pre-Reception and they will be taught French by our French and Italian teacher. The children will enjoy songs and will take part in introductory French conversation.

The children will also enjoy a weekly music class with our school music teacher and in Pre-Reception, they will have a weekly P.E lesson with the school P.E. teacher.

There are in addition, extra activities the children can take part in such as a dance lesson and Mini Sports, both of which take part within the school day.
