The teachers and carers at Busy Kidz create a curriculum based on Child and family interests. Each child is programmed for as an individual as well as group interests. Family input plays an integral role in developing our curriculum and ensures we maintain the link between home and centre.
Our curriculum is based around the Early Years Framework a national early learning framework for children birth to five years. The Early years Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.
Belonging - Is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.
Being - Is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just ‘be’- time to play try new things and have fun.
Becoming - Is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from and early age, which shapes the type of adult they will become.
