Our curriculum for early years is the British Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) infused with the Montessori curriculum. Our pedagogical approach is socioconstructivism.
Our youngest ones (3 to 18 month olds) receive care at its best at the crèche. Developmental milestones are monitored; feeding, diaper change, and sleep routines are professionally managed. Beds, bedding and feeding utensils are personalized. Toys, play equipment and furniture are eco-friendly. A daily report in a communication book is sent home detailing activities for the day, observed milestones, needs and care. These are professionally delivered by passionate, qualified and highly experienced care givers and early years practitioners. Flexible drop off and pick up hours are between 7:00am and 5pm. Snacks and Lunch provided by the school are optional.
Developmental milestones are more deliberately stimulated with structured result-oriented activities. Learning journeys are journaled and cognitive activities are expanded. The voice of the child, the uniqueness of each child and activities are tailored to meet specific needs of each child through differentiation. We have tailored a rich, broad flexible adaptable curriculum that introduces them to phonics, communication, language and literacy, numeracy, fine motor skills, mark making, crafts, music, understanding the world, physical development, personal, social and emotional development at the appropriate point for each child.

Numeracy, understanding the world, phonics, communication, language and literacy, physical development, reading, role-play, personal, social and emotional development are learning areas fully experienced in the Nursery Class. Learning is fun and exciting. Engagement and stimulation are high and impressive.
