Understanding the World (UW) is one of the four specific areas of learning in the EYFS framework. It involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology, and the environment.

Thoughtful, planned, age appropriate use of technology by our early year’s professionals engages the children in key skills such as play, self-expression, and computational thinking which supports later success across all academic discipline’s and helps maintain young children’s natural curiosity.
