Getting started with STEM- FREE LIVE TRAINING- 15th July @ 10am

Laying the foundations

CPD to support you to embed STEM into every day in your setting. 

"I don’t have to struggle to find the words or knowledge to explain things now. I feel more confident"





How will Laying the foundations help?

STEM is often overlooked in the early years, yet it is the perfect way to nurture their innate curiosity and to boost their cultural capital. Nurturing the skills that they'll need for their future.

As settings your role is to provide learning experiences that inspire awe and wonder. A lack of confidence can hold you and your team back, and yet STEM learning experiences both inspire and motivate our young learners.

Laying the foundations will help you move from overwhelmed to confident and inspired.

The framework states:

"Cultural capital is the essential knowledge that children need to prepare them for their future success. It is about giving children the best possible start to their early education. As part of making a judgment about the quality of education, inspectors will consider how well leaders use the curriculum to enhance the experience and opportunities available to children, particularly the most disadvantaged […]

“Some children arrive at an early years setting with different experiences from others, in their learning and play. What a setting does, through the EYFS curriculum and interactions with practitioners potentially makes all the difference to children. It is the role of the setting to help the children experience the awe and wonder of the world in which they live, through the seven areas of learning.”
