Roots and Wings Nursery offers one of the best curriculum in Dubai for young children helping them to learn and prepare for a smooth school transition. Our curriculum is based on modern studies and research on early learning that involves teaching through a creative, organic and progressive approach.
Why the prime areas are ‘prime’?
The seven areas of learning and development replace the previous six areas, grouped into two categories – prime areas and specific areas.
The prime areas are important because they lay the foundations for children’s success in all other areas of learning and of life:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
The specific areas provide the range of experiences and opportunities for children to broaden their knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
How the prime areas relate to one another?
Personal, Social and Emotional Development supports:
Physical Development – a child who feels secure and safe is confident to expand the boundaries of exploration and is motivated to reach, move and test physical capacities.
Communication and Language within relationships that establish turn-taking, joint activity, a desire to communicate and understanding of shared meanings of words.
Physical Development supports: Personal, Social and Emotional Development – increasing physical control provides experience of the self as an active agent in the environment, promoting growth in confidence and awareness of control.
Communication and Language – a child who can effectively use the large movements, gestures and fine movements involved in speech is able to convey messages to others.
Communication and Language supports: Personal, Social and Emotional Development – a child who can communicate feelings, needs and ideas develops a strong sense of self and is increasingly able to relate to others in rewarding and appropriate ways.
Physical Development through describing actions (which increases conscious control) and through talk about health and the factors which influence it.
Roots and Wings offers children an array of enrichments activities maintaining the stability & routine needed during the pre-school age.
