Children from 2 to 5 years old learn in our bright, engaging, play-based environment. Our large open learning spaces and classrooms allow our youngest learners to develop personally, socially, and emotionally, whilst building their confidence to develop academically and ultimately love learning in an international context.
A Curriculum to Foster Engaged, Motivated, Thinkers
We know how critical this early stage of your child’s life is to ensure their future success in the world around them. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework which ensures our teachers can tailor learning experiences to meet the needs of every child across seven areas of learning. Specialist lessons are provided in languages, music, art, dance, drama, swimming and PE, fostering links with the Juilliard School of Performing Arts and MIT.
By observing and recording each stage of your child’s development, we guide them through play and planned activities, to ensure that they gain experiences that will encourage:
Communication and Language skills
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Mathematics, Problem solving and Reasoning
An understanding of the World
Coupled with these experiences is the thematic approach of the International Early Year Curriculum (IEYC). With thematic units on topics such as, "This is Me: Me and My World", "Space Explorers", "Dinosaur Detectives" and "The Brilliant Bug Ball", your child will experience collaborative, active learning. The themes provide our teachers with many opportunities to grasp your child’s interests and make relevant links to early literacy and numeracy skills.
A truly personalized approach
Your child's learning experience is as unique as they are. Our small class sizes and ideal teacher to child ratios enable individualized teaching where we foster a love of learning. From the child’s perspective a curriculum such as this should be full of real-life, concrete experiences. Through careful observation and ongoing assessment, learning goals are set for each child and regularly reviewed in partnership with you.
Play - Our Brain’s Favorite Way of Learning
Play is central to our approach with Early Years children. Our curriculum centers on learning experiences where children make sense of things and people around them, investigate the world, form relationships and interactions. We all learn best when we are motivated, interested, happy, and engaged in experiences which fascinate and challenge us. Our facilities and resources 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.
