Early Years

We warmly welcome you to Early Years where the vast majority of our pupils begin their learning journeys. Located in our spacious Monterrico campus, Early Years caters for boys and girls aged 3 to 6 years old (Nursery, Pre-Kinder, Kinder and Primary 1 classes).

 

Our team of exceptional staff create an environment in which children can learn through experience whilst developing conceptual understanding and crucial skills that will take them to the next stages in their learning. We are committed to supporting each child’s social, emotional and intellectual development.

 

In Early Years all children are encouraged to explore, experiment, practise, imagine, create and play. Much emphasis is placed on developing attitudes and skills that will allow our children to flourish later on in life.  

 

English Immersion Programme

Total English immersion is applied from the first day of classes in Pre-Kinder, and after three years in this programme, our pupils are able to read, write and express themselves in English. Most of all, they enjoy doing so!

 

Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL)

We are fully committed to children learning from direct experience; our classrooms are colourful, buzzing with life and activity. 

 

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The SEN area is designed to support children, staff and parents to address and monitor different needs in the classroom. 

 

Parents’ meetings are programmed throughout the year and full reports sent home in July and December. We invite parents to come into the classrooms at our Open Afternoons and at our parent / teacher / pupil conferences where the children themselves reflect on what they have learned and set new learning targets.  Additionally, parents are always welcome to request interviews with staff whenever the need arises.
