This curriculum has been developed for funded non-maintained nursery settings to adopt, should they wish to do so.

It is part of Curriculum for Wales.

Settings which choose to adopt this curriculum should use it in its entirety to support effective planning to ensure the provision of a developmentally appropriate curriculum for our youngest learners.

It is for use by the following:-

  • leaderspractitioners and management committees of non-maintained nursery settings that are funded to deliver early education in Wales
  • early years advisory teachers, or those in equivalent roles in local authorities and regional consortia, who support settings in the planning and delivery of early education
  • other organisations who provide professional support to non-maintained settings
  • leaders, practitioners and management committees of non-maintained nursery settings which are not funded to deliver early education, but which are required, under the National Minimum Standards for Regulated Childcareto deliver practice in line with the statutory curriculum requirements.

Celebrating the Curriculum presentation will be available soon.
