Partial programme: Early Years Foundation Stage

This programme is a base for children’s education and development in all British International Schools. This programme covers education for children from three to five years old (in UK five year old children go to Year 1). This stage is very important because it is a platform to further learning, Key Stage 1, and is an integral part of this system.

Early Years programme, taught in English, allows the children to form key personal, emotional and social skills.

Programme Goals

The main goal of the Early Years programme is to assist with the harmonious development of a child’s personality: to ensure personal, social and emotional wellness; to form self-respect, independence and self-belief; to develop a sense of group and key social skills, as well as self-study and self-development skills. The latter is the most important part of the modern education at every level.
