Curriculum

Early Years

Our curriculum at Norwich is based on the National Curriculum for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, adapted to our international setting and our Values. We enhance the curriculum with a provision for mindfulness and with a deliberate focus on Mandarin. Students in Early Years at Norwich specifically follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which sets standards for development and care for children to 5 years old.

Playdate is a time, usually two or three mornings per week, where parents can bring their babies and toddlers to spend time together, play, sing and enjoy our facilities.

Our point of entry for formal learning is Nursery, which is for children turning 3 during the academic year (between 1st September and 31stAugust of the following year). Kindergarten is for children turning 4 during the academic year and Reception is for children turning 5 during the academic year.

The Homeroom teachers oversee the delivery of the Prime Areas and Specific Areas of the EYFS, with specialist teachers augmenting the provision as appropriate. 

 

 

 

 

The specialist lessons in Early Years are:
