A Showcase of the Early Years Curriculum at Baleares International College
Here at BIC we aim to foster a positive attitude towards learning, confidence, communication and physical development from a very young age. We plan a rich, exciting and challenging curriculum in our Early Years Department (for children ages 3-5), igniting their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
This is the first stage of a child’s education and the key focus during this part of the national curriculum is based on routine and easing the students into the idea of learning in a structured environment. Many of the undertaken activities are play-based and as the years progress in the foundation stage your child develops new skills through a formal teaching programme which will introduce them and prepare them for their first year in Primary School
Following the Early Years framework our curriculum is based on observations of your child's needs, interests and stages of development across the seven important and inter connected areas of learning, enabling them to achieve and exceed their early learning goals:
The seven areas of learning are composed of:
· Personal, social and emotional development
· Communication and language
· Mathematical development
· Knowledge and understanding of the world
· Physical development
· Creative development
We offer our young learners a range of rich, meaningful first hand experiences in which they explore, enjoy, think creatively and are always active. Languages are an important part of our curriculum and all pupils receive Spanish lessons weekly in addition to celebrating local festivals and embracing the Mallorcan culture. Children also learn to speak confidently in English and build up a strong vocabulary through singing, storytelling and playing, preparing them to be strong readers and writers.
We pride ourselves in the way we involve parents at every stage of their child's learning journey. Parents frequently join us in school for workshops or to talk about their jobs and hobbies. We are a close-knit community and our students benefit greatly from family involvement.
Part of our philosophy is to include as much outdoor learning as possible and we are lucky to have the climate to do this. Our Early Years gardens and outdoors classrooms are beautiful places for young children to explore, build relationships with peers and gain the skills they need.
By enrolling your child in our Early Years department, you are giving them a head start in terms of having the knowledge and skills they need to start school. We offer the support each child needs in order to fulfill their potential. A child's experience between birth and age five has a major impact on their future life and our aim is to provide them with the best possible experience.
For an insight into daily life in our Early Years and Primary schools please join us for our Virtual Open Day on Thursday 20th May.
