EARLY YEARS & FOUNDATION STAGE
We encourage the children to make choices and to become resilient, to ensure that every child makes as much progress as possible.
At The International School of Andalucía we understand the importance of children leading their own learning and learning through structured play. Our Foundation Stage children will have access to a number of learning areas both indoors and outdoors.
The curriculum followed in EYFS is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in England. From Foundation the children will have the opportunity to take part in weekly PE and swimming lessons (in summer) with specialist teachers.
Areas of learning in Foundation Stage:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Mathematical Development
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Students at The International School of Andalucia are provided with many opportunities to develop and thrive. Learning is not limited to the classroom, but can also take place outdoors or through an educational visit. Lessons are lively, fun and challenging, and provide children with many opportunities to think critically and independently.
In addition to the British curriculum, our school values, ethos and teaching approaches encourage children to develop collaborative enquiry skills, and understand that they are important individuals who can make a positive difference to the lives of others. Our aim is to promote curiosity, to encourage students to ask questions, and to teach them to use their skills and knowledge confidently in real life situations.
