Nursery and Reception groups at the British International School in Ukraine are open for children who turn 3 or 4 years old by 31 August. Nursery and Reception groups are available at two of our campuses in Kyiv and in Dnipro and welcome boys and girls of all nationalities, cultures and religions.
Our youngest groups consist of not more than 21 child. With their English-speaking teacher and with support from a Ukrainian-speaking assistant they follow an international curriculum that help them develop skills and attitudes that will help them succeed in the future.
At the two Kyiv campuses children are offered the IB Primary Years Programme, in Dnipro – a program based on the IB Primary Years Programme. The programmes focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom.
At school children communicate with their teacher and assistant teacher in English. Together with continuous communication with English-speaking classmates it helps them develop every day social oral language skills in English.
We know that children in the early years have a fascination for the world around them and our teachers take advantage of this innate curiosity to develop deep understanding of significant ideas. Through structured and purposeful inquiry, we ensure that learning is relevant, engaging and challenging.
