Early Years – Foundation Stage (FS2)

Early Years – Foundation Stage (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 the students to possess positive self-image and to be independent. 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 ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Framework’, 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 work closely with our students through creative play, collaboration and fun to challenge and develop each individual child. We have a team approach where teachers can share innovative initiatives and programmes.

Our EYFS curriculum is multi-sensory and play-based. Play time is well integrated across the curriculum and teaching methodology in indoor and outdoor activities. Our curriculum maintains a balance between structured activities and free play to meet the early learning goals from the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

The seven areas of learning expectations are :

  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Our specialist teachers for Physical Education, Music and languages like Arabic, work alongside the class teacher to enrich each child’s learning experience. 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.
