Early Years (2 to 3 years old)

Children are given time for learning through play, as well as more structured activities such as singing, music, rhyming, physical movement, games, arts and crafts. Activities encourage independence, and social skills.

7 areas of Learning

Areas of learning are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage from the English National Curriculum. By observing and recording each stage of their development, practitioners guide the children through play and planned activities, to ensure that they gain experiences that will encourage:

Physical development
Communication and Language skills
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Mathematical Learning
An understanding of the World
Creative Development
A love of Literacy

A bilingual start in life

Children are exposed to both English and French both of which are spoken in class, and through dedicated language sessions.

During the day children are given time for learning through play, as well as more structured activities such as singing, music, rhyming, physical movement, games, arts and crafts, construction, and by exploring with colour, texture and different materials.  Activities encourage independence, and social skills. The EYFS has its own dedicated outside play area and a large hall for movement activities.

Feedback to parents

In addition to daily conversations with staff, parents receive regular electronic feed-back through weekly communication letters and by receiving regular copies of observation notes and photographs of their child’s individual learning journey, that have been taken throughout the week.
