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, problem-solve, 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.
Curriculum and Pedagogy
Nursery and Pre Kinder
- Finding out children’s interests and using these to support learning

Kinder and Primary 1
English Immersion Programme
Total English immersion is applied from the first day of classes and after four years in this programme, our pupils are able to read, write and express themselves in English. Most of all, they enjoy doing so!
Communication between Home and School
It is a great tool for teachers which allows them to understand student thinking and progress. It also helps teachers identify their strengths and areas for growth in real-time so that they can differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all the students.
Families gain a window into student’s learning, feel part of the school community and are able to celebrate their children’s progress.
