THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE: FS 1 & FS 2
As in the UK, during your child’s first few years (aged 3-5) at SRS we offer the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.Key to our success in the early years is a bilingual approach where British and Arabic teachers work side by side to facilitate the best learning for your child.
The Early Years Foundation Stage has 7 pillars of learning and development:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
There is an emphasis on learning through active play, with children encouraged to build on their individual needs and interests. We all learn best when we are motivated, interested and happy, engaged in experiences that both fascinate and challenge us. We provide the children in our care with a safe, secure and happy environment where they can play and develop their natural skills of enquiry, creativity and critical thinking, thus laying the foundation for success in their future education.
As a parent, you can feel assured that our Early Years staff recognise your child’s needs and are committed to meeting these and ensure that your child’s time with us is safe and happy.
