Welcome to the Early Education Curriculum
Not just any curriculum, a ground breaking dynamic curriculum for
Nursery Children brought to life in its very own web page. This
revolutionary approach brings with it many advantages and possibilities
for the school community.
Lets have a closer
- When you click on to the EEC web page you will see
immediately that this curriculum is like no other in the European
Schools. At a glance you will be able to navigate to the areas you are
especially interested in, and be drawn to explore further.
- This web site incorporates two distinct
areas: The core curriculum and European School documents,
which are official areas of the curriculum, and, links, videos,
photographs, articles, ideas and suggestions together with the forum
for teachers which are not official.
- The new Curriculum has been organised into different
themes ( Early education, Values, Curriculum...) with the
core curriculum consisting of 4 areas:
- Me and my body
- Me as a person
- Me and the others
- Me and the world.
- Each of these areas will have 3 dimensions which show
just what is involved in each area. They are
The OBJECTIVES define the content, the DESCRIPTIONS help teachers and
parents to understand what is involved and OUTCOMES show what most
children can achieve.
- Learning to be
- Learning to live with others
- Learning to do and to know
Not only will you be able to look in detail at the curriculum, but you
will be able to tap into other resources which illustrate and expand
ideas and have the power to inspire us.!
Resources change and so with the EEC web page. Another key advantage of
this web based curriculum is that it can continue to grow as a resource
and point of reference for the school community. It will never become
an outdated document lying on a dusty shelf.
There is so much to be excited about! The web site will have a forum.
Nursery staff from schools all over Europe, will be able to share good
ideas, ask for advice and support each other. The geographical distance
between schools will no longer limit our communication.
