An inclusive approach to Early Years Education

The perfect blend of pedagogy to allow for complete experience; from developing values and empathy to sensory & messy play

The Agora Early Years programme is a play-based foundation to learning. We help children grow as whole persons, develop curiosity, and strive in the world around them.

A foundational programme helping a child to become a whole person:

Foundational domains:

  • Cognition [e.g. readiness to learn, knowledge of things, reasoning, reflection, problem-solving, meta-cognition]
  • Values / Virtues [sharing, turn taking, respect, responsibility]
  • Inquiry [exploration, curiosity, creativity, thoughtful risk taking, challenge orientation]
  • Empathy [theory of mind, social and emotional intelligence, care, compassion]
  • Personal effectiveness [physical capabilities, self-regulation, courtesy, resilience, self-confidence, integration]
  • Being [emotional development, belonging, autonomy]

Curriculum [each of the learning outcomes maps towards the 6 foundational domains]:

  • gross motor skills
  • fine motor skills
  • literacy
  • numeracy
  • creativity
  • performance
  • sensory & messy play
  • social and emotional skills

A child-centred approach

Personalised: each child is different and will have a different learning journey
We nurture children, making them feel welcome, safe and encouraged.

A programme that is inclusive of the parent

Parent guidance:

  • we develop a parent’s understanding of their child’s developmental goals and processes
