Cultural Capital in Early Years

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. We know that children arrive in our Early Years with different experiences from others in their learning and play. We therefore plan in purposeful play and experiences to enable us to build on these early experiences to enable children to be curious, explore, try new things and experience awe and wonder.


Other ways we close the cultural capital gap:

  • Elklan to close the vocabulary gap
  • Opportunities in the environment for purposeful play
  • Trips and experiences
  • Quality texts linked to children’s favourite topics
  • Opportunity to perform for example the Nativity at Christmas
  • Clarksfield pledge passport
  • British Values embedded within the curriculum
  • Safeguarding embedded within the curriculum
