Nursery and Reception
BIC provides a caring, nurturing environment which allows children to thrive and enjoy their learning experience. Learning is based on the English Early Years Foundation Stage framework with a topic-based approach.
We plan an exciting and challenging curriculum based on our observation of children’s needs, interests and stages of development across seven areas of learning to enable the children to achieve and exceed the early learning goals.
All the seven areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
These three areas are the prime areas:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Children are also supported through the four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied.
The specific areas are:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Children are provided with a range of rich, meaningful first-hand experiences in which they explore, think creatively and are active. We aim to develop and foster positive attitudes towards learning, confidence, communication and physical development.
Parents are involved at every stage, and are regularly updated on their child's progress. The Nursery and Early Years Department works very closely with the school's Primary Department, to ensure our students have a seamless transition into the primary classes.
