At Park Lane International school we believe in supporting learning and development from an early age and we therefore offer fun and exciting learning experiences for preschool aged children as well as for the older children within our school community.
Although we are a Primary school we also have an on-site preschool that supports children’s learning and development during their early years. The preschool currently offers education to children from 3 years of age and we are also happy to announce that from September 2013 we will be opening another preschool class that will accommodate learning and development from as early as 2 years of age. This arrangement will enable your child to become familiar and comfortable with their educational surroundings from an early age, and additionally help to support their transition into the upper part of the school as they grow and develop with us.
Within our preschool, we follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ curriculum which is a British based curriculum that nurtures and fosters your child’s natural talents whilst builds upon, and extends new areas of learning and understanding. All true British schools around the world follow and implement the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ curriculum in the same way that we do at Park Lane.
The ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ is structured to support learning and development from birth up to 5 years of age, which means that during your time with us your child will access the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ curriculum from 2 years (Pinkies class) up until they are 5 years old (Reception class).
Whilst your child will follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ within our preschool, they will also access and follow it during their first year of Primary school (Reception class). This is to ensure that your child’s transition into the Primary curriculum is smooth, and stress free.
Although your child will follow the same curriculum from Pinkies through to Reception, please do be assured that within each class your child will be working towards a variety of different Early Learning Goals which ensure progression within their educational development.
