Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Early Learning is delivered within two distinct learning environments: the first, Little Ducks, is for 2 – 3 year olds, while the second contains the Nursery & Reception classes for 3 – 4 year olds
Arguably the most critical years of learning, providing the cognitive and emotional foundation upon which all formal education is constructed.
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 and by the end of Early Years students are attending lessons in PE, Swimming, Music, Library and Thai (for Thai speaking students).
