Izzi Start EYFS Programme
The experiential learning method (including hands-on and brains-on techniques) is of vital importance to the development of children of all ages. Following the Cambridge International curriculum, children learn while being engaged in a range of themed games and activities providing socially and academically enriching experiences. The teachers are deeply committed to fostering the children’s academic progress by meeting the individual needs and creating a safe and supportive environment.
The curriculum content is divided into six subject areas:
Speaking, listening, and storytelling are crucial to children's early development. Showing children the importance of language through fun activities and encouraging them to engage with a wide range of texts helps to ignite a lifelong curiosity for learning.
At an early age, it is important to help children recognise how mathematics impacts everyday life. Through games and activities, they know better mathematical language, thinking and concepts they will need when they start their primary education.
Creative expression (music, dance, role-play) allows children to communicate their ideas and develop their imagination through art and design, music, dance.
This area helps them to develop social learning and friendships. Children learn how to regulate their emotional responses and respond to the needs of others and develop self-esteem and confidence.
The curriculum encourages children to develop movement skills through play, promoting positive attitudes towards exercise and laying the foundations for healthy, active lives.
Children’s innate curiosity must be encouraged, so that they are equipped to reflect, question, explore and interact with the world. This area of the curriculum lays the foundations for a range of different subjects in primary education and beyond, including science, history, and geography.
