Our Pre-school Curriculum Goals have been designed to reflect the needs of our children at our Pre-school. We have used our knowledge and understanding of the children’s backgrounds and experiences to develop goals that will ensure the children at Kymbrook Preschool leave with the skills they need to become confident, resilient, and ambitious learners.

Our goals have been developed using ‘Development Matters’ and ‘Birth to Five’ guidance documents. Each goal has been constructed to enable children to develop and thrive within the Prime and Specific Areas of the EYFS.

We have based our goals on our children’s needs and what they need to be ready for their next step in education.
