WSA Infant School curriculum is based on the Frame work for early years foundation stage set in a Nigerian context We work on the seven areas of learning and development by providing learning opportunities for children to develop the 3 prime areas first.

These are:

  • Communication and language;
  • Physical development; and
  • Personal, social and emotional development.

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas which are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the world; and
  • Expressive arts and design.

These 7 areas are used to plan each child’s learning and activities. We will support your child and make sure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs. This curriculum is suitable for very young children, and is designed to be really flexible so that staff can follow your child's unique needs and interests.

Children in the Crèche and Kindergarten learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

Our objective is that at the end of their time at WSA Infant School, children will be ready to progress in a happy, positive and confident way in elementary school.

Since these areas of learning are introduced through play, all of our learning resources, which may appear similar to toys, have an educational purpose, for example, construction toys develop motor skills, creative thinking and spatial concepts, and the Home Corner encourages creativity, language and socialisation. A wide range of activities are provided every day and each child participates at their own level.

Every child is observed daily to record achievements, interests , milestones and progress.
