Early Years: Nursery & Reception

3 to 5 years old

Nursery and Reception children access this first stage known as Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which prepares them for the Primary stage of their education.

At BSV the children’s learning experience is happy, active, fun and safe whilst it supports their continuous progress and develop in an environment specially designed for independent and individualised learning. 

100% of their school day is in English. Children begin to learn this language whilst playing games, participating in activities and by living different experiences that they will be able to share with their classmates and teachers.

With a maximum of 20 children in the classroom, they have an English-speaking teacher and the permanent presence of a teacher assistant who ensures the attention that children require. The pupils are also taught by specialist teachers for P.E. and Music.

Children learn new skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through seven main and specific areas of learning.

MAIN AREAS

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

SPECIFIC AREAS

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

A new learning environment designed for Early Years

The Early Years facilities have been completely renovated. Children enjoy a dynamic, energetic and inspiring environment where they are able to develop their imagination and creativity thanks to flexible spaces that facilitate active and collaborative learning. These classrooms are meant to explore, discover and enjoy through multisensory experiences. 

Students have an independent entrance to the school and all classrooms include toilets to facilitate their independence as well as specific furniture for their age.

They have their own Early Years playground area equipped with swings and other games suitable for their age and a separate dining room.

Given the location of the school, both the dining room and bus service are optional for all our families.
