“Play is the work of children.”- Maria Montessori
Toddlers International Nursery is proud to be recognized as an international Nursery whose holistic approach aims to take into account each and every child’s unique ethnic, cultural and religious background. As per our curriculum, we follow the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework. The EYFS principles are based on the belief that each child is unique and that they each learn and develop in different ways and at a different rate. It works to foster positive relationships and to provide enabling environments that will support learning and development at this crucial stage of the child’s life.
Our mission derived from the principles of the EYFS. Since we established the Nursery in 2009, we aim to ensure, each and every day, that our children are cared for in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. We recognize that every child is different and endeavor to deliver the best possible experience in the most flexible manner.
Additionally, your child’s learning experience at TIN will revolve around theme-based units with a focus on 7 areas of learning. These areas are the following:
The Prime Areas:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
The Specific Areas:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
To further enhance children’s learning and extend their skills and knowledge, additional fun and diversified activities and celebrations are introduced throughout the Academic Year. Cooking activities, field trips, colour days, and special events, such as a visit from the Dental Van and a Petting Zoo, will further enrich children’s experience and add to the fun! Special emphasis is also placed on structuring the child’s basic skills and helping to ingrain positive values and attitudes.
In our Foundation Programme the children are introduced to the Jolly Phonics. By making use of a fun and child-centered approach, this programme introduces children to the 42 letter sounds using different multi-sensory methods. The letter sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.
