Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage at BVIS offers children an outstanding learning environment. We provide Pre-Nursery (F1), Nursery (F2) and Reception (F3) education of the highest quality. 

The school offers a play-based curriculum using teaching and learning materials from the British Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The main emphasis is on providing a secure and nurturing environment that allows for all of the children to develop at their own pace.

The Early Years Foundation Stage includes the following seven areas of learning.

Three Prime Areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

Four Core Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design

There is a strong emphasis on personal, social and emotional development as a means by which children develop their skills of independence, problem solving and confidence.

During their time at Pre-Nursery School, Nursery School and Reception, children have the opportunity to work towards these Early Learning Goals in the seven areas of learning in both Vietnamese and English.

Their dual language acquisition is carefully nurtured through planned language focus, whilst offering close support along the way.
