Our KG Stage Curriculum
The KG Stage recognises that every child deserves the best possible start in life.
At Education Gate International School – Al Murraba, we follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. The EYFS Framework explains how and what children in EYFS will be learning to support their development.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is based upon four principles:
A Unique Child: developing resilient, capable, confident and self-assured individuals;
Learning and developing: an acknowledgement that children learn in different ways and at different rates;
Enabling environments: where opportunities and experiences respond to the individual needs of the child by developing a strong partnership between practitioners, parents/carers and the child;
Positive relationships: supporting the children in becoming strong and independent.
Play underpins the curriculum provision. Children have the opportunity to play indoors and outdoors on a daily basis. Children play spontaneously, although they will be given adult support when needed. It is through play that the children will develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.
Our aim is to ensure that children enjoy their Early Years experiences in the care of well qualified and caring staff. We lay the foundations for the children’s future successes through a stimulating and ‘hands on’ curriculum that is divided into the following areas:
- Physical Development
- Communication & Language
- Personal, Social & Emotional Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts & Design
