The Early Years Unit of H-IS caters for children between the ages of 3 and 6.

It provides a safe, positive and happy environment, equipped to foster creativity and learning through a planned play-based curriculum. The activities are designed to promote children’s confidence of the digital and of course with the English language.

Our teachers follow each child individually, taking into account the needs, interests and uniqueness of each.

The teachers encourage the independence and autonomy of children and work alongside them to help them become aware of their own needs and feelings as well as the needs and feelings of others. We are aware that the first years of school life for a child are fundamental and when children feel safe, happy and stimulated, a good foundation for future learning is achieved.

Our Early Years classes are divided into three age related categories:

 

  • Honey Bees (3-4 years old)
  • Busy Bees (4-5 years old)
  • Reception (5-6 years old).
