Here at Baleares International College, Sant Agustí, we aim to foster a positive attitude towards learning, confidence, communication and physical development from a very young age. We plan a rich, exciting and challenging curriculum in our Early Years Department for children aged 2 – 5, igniting their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
Following the English National Curriculum framework, our Early Years curriculum is based on our observation your child’s needs, interests and stages of development across seven important and inter-connected areas of learning, enabling them to achieve and exceed their early learning goals.
We offer our young learners a range of rich, meaningful first-hand experiences in which they explore, enjoy, think creatively and are active. Languages are an important part of our curriculum - our Early Years students receive 5 hours of Spanish lessons per week, immersing them into the local culture and broadening their understanding of their environment as a whole.
We pride ourselves in the way we involve parents at every stage of their child’s learning too. Just last week we had a visit from Harry’s parents in Nursery, who came in to share their musical talent and inspire our young musicians in a colourful display of rhythm, song, and dance. Earlier this month, Alicia’s mum came in to share her passion for baking – such fun had! We are a close-knit community here at BIC Sant Agustí, and our students benefit from it greatly.
BIC Sant Agustí welcomes students from 2 – 11 years of age, therefore upon completion of the Early Years Foundation Stage, our students benefit uniquely from a seamless transition into Year 1 in our Primary Department, with a familiarity of their learning environment, peers and teachers.
For a taste of what our Early Years Department has to offer your child, please join us at one of our weekly Toddler Group sessions happening every Thursday from 9:15-10:30am in the Early Years Garden at our Sant Agustí campus – it’s free and is a great opportunity to get to know other local families with young children.
