Early Years Foundation Stage

At this tender age, children learn through a combination of teacher-pupil initiated activities and, of course, through play.

Here at The British International School, Budapest we provide children, aged between 3 and 5 years, with quality early education, based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).  The EYFS recognises that this is a separate stage of learning, laying the foundations for when children begin formal education.  

There is an emphasis on learning through active play, with children encouraged to build on their individual needs and interests.  We all learn best when we are motivated, interested and happy, engaged in experiences that both fascinate and challenge us.  We provide the children in our care with a safe, secure and happy environment where they can play and develop their natural skills of enquiry, creativity and critical thinking, thus laying the foundation for success in their future education.

We maximise our wonderful playgrounds which act as an extension of the classroom to expand the range of activities your child may access on a daily basis.

The Early Years Foundation Stage has 7 pillars of learning and development:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

As a parent, you can feel assured that our Early Years staff recognise your child’s needs and are committed to meeting these and ensure that your child’s time with us is safe and happy. 

At our school, we understand that you, as a parent, are your child’s first educator and we value the partnership we have in ensuring your child gets the most from their learning experiences.  We aim to foster happy children.  Please come and visit us, to see for yourself.
