Our Early Years department provides high-quality education for children aged from 1 to 5 years in a beautiful, purpose-designed learning environment. At King`s Oak British International School children are encouraged to make choices and decisions for themselves supported by our caring team, who nurture each child’s self-esteem and their belief in themselves as learners.
We promote and encourage independence and problem solving skills. Our friendly, structured environment means that our pupils not only have fun learning, but through their engagement and enjoyment they also achieve high academic standards.
About the Early Years
Following the Early Years Foundation Stage we provide a rich and stimulating environment both in and out of doors, where children learn through real-life practical experiences. King’s Oak School is committed in creating an environment in which children can participate and achieve their full potential both socially and physically.
The Early Years department is divided into academic year groups called:
- Creche – children between 8 months and 18 months
- Pink – children between 18 months and 2 years old
- Orange – children between 2 and 3 years old. Children must be 2 by the 1st September.
- Green – children between 3 and 4 years old. Children must be 3 by the 1st September.
- Reception class – children between 4 and 5 years old. Children must be 4 by the 1st September.
Although the curriculum is based on the best of UK practice it draws on influences from the great pioneers of Early Years education and from approaches found around the world which are adapted for an expatriate community. For example, our work is influenced by pioneers such as Fröbel (German), Isaacs (English), Montessori (Italian), Vygotsky (Russian), Steiner (Austrian) and the Reggio Emilia approach (Italy).
We have small class sizes. Our highly skilled and committed team ensure our children receive close individual attention and our introduced to a wide range of opportunities. We have a reputation for being unique, helping each child to become purposeful and informed in their discoveries. We encourage children to fulfill their potential whilst still allowing children to be children with the freedom to explore and grow! At the end of their time in the Reception Class, the children will be well equipped for the next stage in their learning journey.
