AGES 2–4


Your child’s Early Years at Léman International School Chengdu are grounded in the holistic, child-centred, and exploratory Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) British curriculum. From Nursery onward, we focus on developing our young learners’ communication and language skills, creative expressions, and physical abilities – alongside their well-being, personal growth, and social development.

Our British EYFS Curriculum at Léman Chengdu
Following our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, we create learning experiences that provide emergent, playful situations – where our young learners make sense of the things and people around them, investigate the world, and form relationships through their interactions. 

Our Early Years programme spans Pre-Nursery classes (for two-year-olds) to Reception (for four-year-olds). The programme is colourful, active, and fun – responsive to the unique nature of each child. We emphasise the importance of developing the skills and attitudes they need in the Early Years and continued throughout their lifetime of learning.

We recognise that all children need opportunities to explore, experience, and enquire at their own level, and this is dependent upon their stage of development. As a result, our programme looks at our young learners’ individual physical, cognitive, and social development, and we use Personal Learning Plans (PLPs) to document and set goals that meet their unique needs.

Finally, our Early Years activities help our students work towards the subject, personal, and international goals of their future International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which they will explore once they enter Primary School.
