At Bangkok Prep, our Early Years curriculum is based on the 2017 Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England.
The curriculum is facilitated through topic based and child led themes, introducing children to a stimulating school life; where enjoyment is the main ingredient in a programme that develops learning through play. The framework develops concepts, skills, learning strategies and positive attitudes across the intellectual, social and physical areas of learning.
Our Early Years curriculum consists of the following seven areas:
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
· Communication and Language
· Physical Development
· Literacy – Reading and Writing
· Understanding of the World
· Expressive Arts and Design
In the Early Years, the curriculum considers each individual child’s needs; ensuring that children are making continuous progress whilst maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. It incorporates early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as play-based philosophy, which links social interaction and theme-based learning.
Specialist teachers lead learning in specialist lessons in Thai Language and Thai Culture Studies, Music, Physical Education and Swimming.
Early Years offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment where children are supervised by native English teachers and Thai speaking teaching assistants. Language is acquired and continuously developed through the immersion method. Thus enabling children to be fully absorbed into the English language, which helps them quickly find their way in our international community. Our Early Years is the ideal preparation for the transition into the Primary school.
For young children’s wellbeing and development, the outdoor environment is as equally valued and important as the indoor classroom.
The outdoors is different to indoors and these differences are what make it special and important. We ensure that our children have access to a high-quality outdoor environment that provides a wonderfully rich and dynamic environment for exploration, play and discussion.
