Foundation Stage

Explore the world in a creative and caring environment

Our Foundation Stage curriculum is split into:

  • Foundation Stage 1 : 3-4 Years
  • Foundation Stage 2 : 4-5 Years

The curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and is planned through a series of themes ensuring that skills, knowledge and understanding are taught and applied in:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

Here, children are exposed to the basic building blocks of learning, preparing them for the next steps in their education. We want our young children to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding they need but also be familiar with their local community. The curriculum will be strongly supported by the use of ICT and e-learning. It will provide an approach based on activity to allow opportunities for young children to question, experiment, explore and enjoy.

Arabic will be taught in accordance with Ministry regulations but within the context of the Early Years Foundation stage setting.

Children admitted into the Foundation Stage with particular learning needs, will access a broad and balanced curriculum within an inclusive approach but with specific programmes of study and support developed in partnership with the school’s Learning Support Team.
