Mission Statement and Curriculum

Mission Statement
Our aim is to facilitate independence and encourage self-motivated learners through a play-based curriculum. Children are encouraged to develop at their own pace, using their own individual strengths.

The center's employees and the board of directors of the center are dedicated to the welfare, development and safety of the children. To help ensure these goals, monitored cameras are installed throughout the center for the safety and security of the children.   

Curriculum
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which is appropriate for children, no matter which educational system they will enter. It is divided into six areas:

  1. Social and Emotional Development
  2. Communication, Language and Literacy
  3. Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  4. Creativity
  5. Physical Development
  6. Knowledge and Understanding of the World

Planning and Observation
The key to a good learning environment for young children is thorough planning and careful observation. There is no formal class teaching. All learning takes place while the children play and interact with one another and their teachers. Children's needs are met and they are encouraged to "take the next step".

Every child will receive a settling in report between four and six weeks after entering their class, and an end of year report in June.
