About Essentials for Education
Here at Essentials for Education we take great pride and responsibility designing, sourcing and helping to develop educational resources for children of all ages and ability levels. We are very aware that children learning from birth to 5 years are learning set by the standards of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We supply childminders, schools, nurseries, playgroups and school reception classes with resources we feel will help these children develop.
Essentials for Education are always actively looking to enhance the products we supply to help early years professionals promote and educate children in the 7 areas of learning: Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design. Three of these areas Communication and language, Physical development and personal, social and emotional development are prime areas where children can learn and develop their basic life skills, gaining confidence then to strengthen and apply literacy and mathematical skills.
Early years professionals can reflect on the different ways a child will react and learn from these areas of learning set out in the (EYFS) by using three characteristics of effective learning and teaching these children. These three key characteristics are Playing and exploring, Active learning and creating and thinking critically. Each of these key characteristics of teaching and learning are central to a child learning in a fun and interesting environment and here at Essentials we want to be able to offer you educational products and resources to guide you and help resource your educational setting correctly. Children love to explore and investigate both inside and outdoors, an active child is going to experience difficulties, and these issues can be then turned into achievements and a positive outcome. Also a child given the space to enhance and develop their ideas and visions gives confidence, allowing children the space to develop and lays down a good positive foundation for future learning.
Everyone is an individual and every child is unique in their own special way. This is why we feel having a wide range of products and services can help you vary the activities available to your children.
