Early Years Foundation Stage
Early Years education forms the cornerstone upon which young children establish the groundwork for their future schooling.
Educators must offer a blend of child-initiated and adult-guided activities that spark children's innate curiosity, fostering a conducive and secure learning atmosphere. Improvements should be implemented to incite fascination and engagement.
Children ought to have chances to investigate and comprehend the world through sensory exploration and firsthand encounters. The curriculum integrates the British Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum alongside Sri KDU International School, Kota Damansara Education's Core Values and customized programs. This approach enables children to expand their thoughts, develop concepts, and reinforce skills.
Our Early Years Curriculum emphasises the seven areas of learning:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Expressive Arts and Design
Understanding of the World
Principles of Effective Learning
We closely monitor children’s engagement with the characteristics of effective learning. These principles focus not only on what children learn but the way in which they engage with others and the environment through:
Play And Exploring
Creating and Thinking Critically
Empowering Young Learners
The school closely monitors the children's engagement with the principles of effective learning, which focus on both what they learn and how they engage with others and the environment. The goal is to empower children to be independent, resilient, confident learners who can reflect on their decisions, demonstrate tenacity, and express themselves confidently. This is achieved through active learning, playing, exploring, and scaffolding by practitioners.
We aim to create a stimulating and safe learning environment which inspires a child’s innate curiosity to explore and learn.
We utilise child-centred practises which personalise the curriculum to meet the individual needs and interests of each child.
At Sri KDU International School, Kota Damansara we set solid foundations and reach the best possible outcomes for all children on their individual flightpaths into education.
We strive to provide the highest possible standards of education in a holistic way and ignite a lifelong love of learning.
