Bingham Kindergarten follows the teaching curriculum recommended by the Government, as defined by their guidelines, officially known as 'The Early Years Foundation Stage', or the EYFS.

The EYFS is the stage of a child's development from birth to the end of the reception year. It is a framework that describes the best way that early years' practitioners should work with children and their families to support their development and learning.

The EYFS ensures:

  • children learn through play.

  • providers work closely with parents.

  • your child's learning at home is taken into account.

  • you are kept up-to-date on your child's progress.

  • the welfare, learning and all-round development of children from different backgrounds and levels of ability, including those with special educational needs and disabilities is met.


The EYFS is based on four themes/principles:

  • A Unique Child - Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

  • Positive Relationships - Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.

  • Enabling Environments - The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning.

  • Learning and Development – Recognizes that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and interconnected.

  • The EYFS framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their development.

  • Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. These areas are:

  • Communication and Language

  • Physical Development

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the World.

  • Expressive Arts and Design                                                    

Staff are always happy to discuss the curriculum with you so that you can be involved in your child’s learning. We will plan a time each term to discuss your child’s progress with you and keep you informed meanwhile. You can also find more information on the EYFS at
