Introduction to NCFE Foundational Stage

The vision of the National Education Policy 2020 is to change the education system in order to contribute to an equitable and vibrant knowledge society by providing High-quality education to all. Preschool education envisions promoting universal, equitable, joyful, inclusive, and context - specific learning opportunities to ensure the holistic development of all children aged 3-6.

In our vision for the future of early childhood education, NCFE students will be enriched and supported with the tools they need to compete globally. We provide a safe environment for children to play while their parents are at work or school, we create a space for children and adults to participate in a variety of activities and reach their full potential, and we provide a place for children to learn life skills. 

Implementing  Foundational Stage 

The Practice Principles are based on the Early Years Learning Framework's pedagogy, which is the best and most comprehensive approach to supporting children's learning, development, and well-being. This programme recognizes that all children develop at different rates and ensures that each child develops to their full potential physically, socially, emotionally, morally, and intellectually. We make certain that important learning areas are covered, as well as that all of the young child's developmental needs are met.

Approaches to NCFE Foundational Stage

Through an integrated and play - based approach that focuses on the development of life skills, the curriculum addresses the following interrelated domains: cognitive (thinking), affective (emotions or feelings), and psychomotor (physical or kinesthetic).  Thus, our teaching approaches take a play and activity -based approach, with learning processes based on the children's needs, interests, abilities, and social context. Language is learned in the following order, according to developmental pedagogy:


The emphasis in the early years is on listening and speaking as the primary activities in the classroom, which are facilitated through free play with peers and lay the groundwork for the development of reading, writing, and number work. Keeping the aforementioned perspectives in mind, early childhood curriculum is defined as an organized framework that includes well-planned and developed teaching approaches for the Foundational Stage.
