Welcome to the Early Years Department of the New English School. 

We are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment where children aged 3-5 can learn and grow through play-based activities and hands-on experiences. Our highly trained and experienced teachers understand that the early years are a critical time in a child's development, and we strive to create a stimulating and engaging learning environment that encourages curiosity, creativity, and a love for learning. With a focus on social and emotional development, language and literacy, numeracy, and physical development, we aim to support each child's unique abilities and interests as they embark on their educational journey.

Early Years students enjoy structured play at the New English School


Our KG and Reception classes follow the Early Years Curriculum from England. We strive to develop creative skills, social and emotional values, thinking skills and physical development in our young pupils. Our British School Overseas (BSO) accreditation in November 2015 highlighted and praised the creativeness within our Early Years Foundation Curriculum, enabling our pupils to be imaginative, develop new ideas and express themselves.
Students experience the joys of learning and discovery, as well as the spontaneous delights of childhood in a secure environment. We believe that early development of basic skills provides a sound foundation for future learning.

Pupils’ learning is monitored carefully, and activities are planned as children's personalised learning is considered to be of the highest importance.

In addition to class-based lessons, Kindergarten and Reception pupils also experience some specialist lessons:

  • Music lessons are taught by music specialists. Musical language, rhythm and movement are introduced through songs and children have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of instruments.
  • P.E. lessons (Physical Education) are taken by P.E. specialists. These lessons focus on developing the pupils’ physical control, awareness of space and the ability to handle and experiment with a range of equipment effectively.
  • During Library visits, pupils are taught how to look after, explore, appreciate and enjoy a variety of books. Reception pupils take library books home within the second term.
