St. Pius X International School is pleased to announce the start of an exciting educational journey with us, the new ‘Cambridge Early Years Programme’ .This programme helps learners aged 3 to 6 develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to make the best possible start in life.
It gives centres everything they need to deliver a quality early years education: a holistic and balanced curriculum, engaging classroom resources, assessment approaches to measure learners’ progress, and professional development opportunities. Teaching and learning is play-based and child-centred, and focuses on building learners’ skills and confidence in key developmental areas.
Based on international best practices across the world
5 Key principles
Learning should complement the social and cultural factors (like experiences of home and community) that shape a child’s learning and development.
Children should be involved in their own learning through well-planned experiences that help them develop competence, agency, emotional attachment, and self-worth.
Learning should encourage an appropriate balance of physical, cognitive, language and communications, and social and emotional development.
Learning should be age-appropriate, play-based, and child-centered. It should include both child- and adult-led activities.
Early years education should help children transition successfully to primary school, moving from informal, play-based learning to teaching that is more formal.
The curriculum content is split into six subject areas:
Communication, language & literacy
Personal, social & emotional development
Understanding the world
Beyond the Books
The Cambridge Early Years curriculum offers a holistic approach that focuses on the whole child and connects their development with the world and people around them.
WE ARE PROVIDING AN ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR STUDENTS TO GROW & EXCEL
An environment that is enabled for learning is one where children feel safe to explore and provide opportunities for social, emotional and personal development to take place. An enabled environment is not static; it is developed over time by responding to each child's learning journey. Capturing a picture of what children are curious to explore and learn about is essential to planning a learning environment that enables children to engage, play, explore and develop knowledge and increasing understanding, and new skills.
