Our Early Years is dedicated to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) which is the British national strategy providing a standardised framework and planned curriculum for the education and care of young children. In our Early Years we employ experienced International teachers with British recognised qualifications.
The EYFS curriculum is a play-based curriculum and specifically designed to provide equal opportunities for all children to develop skills and competencies, to flourish as individuals and to achieve in a child-centered learning environment – ensuring children enjoy greater success with the consistency and natural progression of skill development to support a smooth transition into Primary. By enrolling in our Early Years parents are giving their children a great advantage in life as research shows the majority of children that complete the Early Years programme are achieving at a higher level when compared to others.
The EYFS divided into 7 areas of learning and development: 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas which are all planned for and assessed as ongoing support for development.
Communication and language
Listening and attention: Understanding: Speaking
Moving and Handling: Health and self-care
Personal Social and Emotional Development

Children at BISU enjoy the challenges and rewards offered from specific teaching strategies, attention to active engagement with hands-on learning activities, collaborative opportunities, and critical thinking skill development. At the heart of the EYFS is the fundamental belief that all children are unique in their learning pathways and possess strengths and competencies which teachers embrace and weave into their curriculum planning to ensure personal motivation.
