Our Curriculum 

Meadow Brook Playcare is a Curiosity Approach setting that uses in the moment planning, alongside the Birth to 5 Matters as our supporting document of the EYFS.

​Birth to 5 Matters provides comprehensive guidance, drawing on previous guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which has been updated in order to reflect recent research, to meet the needs of practitioners, to respond to current issues in society, to meet the needs of children today and to lay a strong foundation for their futures.

The Birth 2 Five Matters is broken down into 7 areas. 

Prime areas 

Personal, Social, Emotional development, Physical development and Communication and Language 

Specific areas 

Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design

The four principles of the EYFS underpin all the guidance in Birth to 5 Matters, which is designed to show how these principles work together for children in the EYFS
