The 3 prime areas are:
- Communication and Language development - giving children opportunities to speak and listen in a range of situations and to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves.
- Physical development - providing opportunities for young children to be active and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy food choices.
- Personal, Social and Emotional development - helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.
