Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Early Years learning is delivered within two distinct learning environments: the first, Little Ducks, is for two to three year-olds, while the second contains the Nursery and Reception classes for three to four year-olds.
Arguably the most critical years of learning, providing the cognitive and emotional foundation upon which all formal education is constructed.
(BISP Guiding Statements)
Play is a young child’s attempt to make sense of the world – in effect a rehearsal for life itself. Guiding children on their journey of discovery is an experienced team of Early Years teachers and teaching assistants, who work within the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, developed by the British Association for Early Childhood Education.
The carefully designed learning spaces include indoor and outdoor areas through which children can move freely, allowing them to follow their own interests and natural curiosity, and to be active in their own learning.
Other specialist teachers contribute to the learning programme. By the end of Early Years, students are attending lessons in PE, Swimming, Music, Library, and Thai (for Thai speaking students).
