The Cambridge Early Years programme offers a holistic and play-way approach that focuses on the whole child and their development. The aim of Early Years education is to provide a strong foundation for all-around development and lifelong learning.
The programme is built on the five key principles:
Experience, Active, Balance, Play and Transition.

The content is divided into six curriculum areas:
