Early Years Foundation Skills: The Fundamentals for 0-5 year olds


The Fundamental Early Childhood Skills that we integrate into our Playgroup learning program target specific areas to achieve clear objectives.


Each learning domain revolves around structured games, combining purpose and a variety of activities. In this process, the child has a say, even if the framework is defined by adults.


🌟 Cultivate these essential domains and Develop Early Years Foundation skills

  • 🗣️ Communication and Language: Stimulate language by talking, singing, and reading to your child every day. This enriches their linguistic environment, thus strengthening their confidence and ability to express themselves. Encourage the relationship between sounds and letters.

  • ✍️ Fine Motor Skills: Promote drawing, coloring, and handling objects to improve dexterity.

  • 🏃 Gross Motor Skills: Ensure your child has the opportunity to run, jump, and play. Promote action and interaction to improve coordination and movement.

  • 🌈 Recognition of Shapes and Colors: Offer games to sort and name different shapes and colors.

  • 🤝 Social Skills: Promote group games and activities requiring sharing and taking turns. Help the child form positive relationships and understand group behavior.

  • 💡 Problem Solving: Introduce simple puzzles and construction games. Provide opportunities to understand numbers and geometry.

  • ❤️ Emotional Understanding: Discuss emotions to help your child recognize them.

  • 🔍 Curiosity and Exploration: Allow your child to explore their world. Guide children to make sense of their environment.

  • 👚 Independence: Encourage activities that strengthen their autonomy.

  • 🎨 Creativity: Provide tools for creative expression. Let children explore various artistic mediums.

Keep in mind that each child is unique and develops at their own pace, but the Fundamental Early Childhood Skills are essential for their overall development. So, think of ideas that fit into each domain.


Play is paramount for children, boosting their confidence to explore, reflect, and make connections. Active learning allows the child to remain engaged despite obstacles.


At KidooLand we adapt our methods according to their needs, interests, and level of development. We regularly evaluate their progress, closely collaborating with parents, especially for linguistic skills in French and English.
