Hands-On Education is based off the National Curriculum in England. Key Stage 1 level is school years One and Two. This is the first two years of formal education for children in England and are aged 5 to 7.
Our activities are open ended and can easily be manipulated to suit both younger and older children. Harry and Teddy often do the activities together despite the 18 months age gap.
