Early Years

Our Early Years Curriculum Explained

At Bangkok Prep, our Early Years curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England.

The curriculum is facilitated through our unique thematic topics and child-led learning experiences, introducing children to a stimulating and engaging school life; where enjoyment and exploration are the key ingredients in an approach that develops learning through play. The framework develops concepts, skills, learning strategies and positive attitudes across the intellectual, social and physical areas of learning.

The Early Years takes into account the four main principles of the Early Years curriculum, focusing on the child as a unique individual; the positive facilitation of learning through the enabling environment and learning spaces; the development of positive relationships and embracing the different styles and pace of learning and development for all children.

Our Early Years curriculum consists of the following seven areas with seventeen underpinning aspects:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
    (Making Relationships, Self confidence and Self awareness and Managing Feelings and Behaviour).
  • Communication and Language
    (Listening and Attention, Understanding and Speaking).
  • Physical Development
    (Moving and Handling and Health and Self care)
  • Literacy
    (Reading and Writing)
  • Mathematics
    (Numbers and Shapes, Space and Measure)
  • Understanding of the World
    (People and Communities, The World and Technology)
  • Expressive Arts and Design
    (Exploring Using Media and Materials and Being Imaginative)

In the Early Years, the curriculum considers each individual child’s needs; ensuring that children are making continuous progress whilst maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. It incorporates early literacy and mathematical skills, as well as encompassing a play-based philosophy, which links social interaction and theme-based learning.

Specialist sessions to further enhance the learning opportunities in Early Years are provided for Thai Language and Thai Cultural Studies, Music, Library, Physical Education and Swimming.

If your child is not yet of school age, we invite you to attend our Playgroup, held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings (during term time).

Early Years offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment where children are supervised by native English teachers and Thai speaking teaching assistants. Language is acquired and continuously developed through the immersion method. Thus enabling children to be fully absorbed into the English language, which helps them quickly find their way in our international community. Our Early Years is the ideal preparation for the transition into the Primary school.

For young children’s wellbeing and development, the outdoor environment is as equally valued and important as the indoor classroom.

The outdoors is different to indoors and these differences are what make it special and important. We ensure that our children have access to a high-quality outdoor environment that provides a wonderfully rich and dynamic environment for exploration, play and discussion.
