Early Learning Goals (ELGs)
By the time they reach the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage, most children should have reached and some may have gone beyond these Goals. Children work towards these Goals through the Six Areas of Learning which are:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development: This covers areas such as building confidence, concentration, independence and respect.
Communication, Language and Literacy: including developing speaking and listening, and beginning to read and write.
Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy: This includes number work, mathematical ideas and thinking.
Knowledge and Understanding of the World: This area is about children investigating and thinking about their place in the world.
Physical Development: This concentrates on developing children’s physical skills and understanding.
Creative Development: This area is to do with building your child’s imagination.
