An Overview of Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
Our outstanding Early Years Programme covers Nursery and Reception and is taught in nurturing and inspiring purpose-built learning spaces by dedicated and highly qualified UK trained teachers who support every aspect of your child’s learning. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework for children’s development for Nursery and Reception (3 to 5 years old) and tailor this to meet the needs of an international environment.
Developing Your Child's Passion for Learning
At Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong (NAIS), we know how critical this early stage of children’s lives is to ensuring they become confident, well rounded individuals who love learning. We want your child to have fun, be happy, safe and secure at all times. We want to inspire them to become purposeful, confident and lifelong learners.
The Importance of "Play" in Learning
Children learn in a variety of ways: watching others, talking, asking questions, listening, exploring and investigating. At NAIS we take time to ensure that children are presented with multiple opportunities that allow for such engagement. Play is also an important foundation of development and learning for young children, and as such, your child will take part in many indoor and outdoor play experiences that will help them to learn whilst being engaged and having fun.
Our Personalised Approach in Learning
At NAIS we adopt a personalised learning approach and we believe that a happy, confident child equals a confident, engaged and successful one which is why we ensure all learning styles are catered to. Indeed, it is the needs of children that determine the learning, and their interests that steer the learning experiences we offer. We want children to be competent, confident learners who know they are valued and listened to.
Our Early Years provision enables your child to develop their personalities, talents and abilities, enabling them to develop a strong sense of self, feel positive about their abilities as a learner, form constructive relationships and become confident communicators.
The Importance of Technology in Learning
During learning and play, the children are supported and encouraged to; find out and explore, play with what they know, be willing to ‘have a go’, be involved, to concentrate, keep trying, collaborate, enjoy achieving what they set out to do, have their own ideas, make links and choose different ways to do things. The use of technology is embedded in all areas of learning and used to enhance and reinforce the various learning opportunities.
