Early Years (Kindergarten FS1 and FS2)
Through a well-planned curriculum, we offer challenging and rich learning opportunities where a child’s desire and curiosity to learn will be stimulated and fulfilled. We encourage a positive self-image, independence and self-confidence. We understand that children develop at an individual pace and each child is encouraged to reach his/her full potential.
The School follows the English National Curriculum, but has a more flexible approach as it is mindful of the local educational needs and culture, including the UAE National Agenda. The teaching staff works closely with our students through creative play, collaboration and fun to challenge and develop each individual child. We have a team approach were teachers can share innovative initiatives and programmes.
Our curriculum maintains a balance between structured activities and free play to meet the early learning goals for the Foundation Stage as set out in the English National Curriculum.
THE SEVEN AREAS OF LEARNING EXPECTATIONS:
- Communication and Language
- Mathematical Development
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Science, ICT, Environment, Social Studies, Geography and History)
- Expressive Arts and Design
We carefully monitor and assess each child’s development. Parents are informed, on a regular basis, about their child’s progress and we welcome input from all our parents.
