In the Early Years our children follow the English National Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage, a carefully structured, relevant and child-centered curriculum, covering six areas of learning: 1) Personal, Social and Emotional Development; 2) Communication, Language and Literacy; 3) Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy; 4) Knowledge and Understanding of the World; 5) Physical Development and 6) Creative Development. Well-planned play at KISU is a key way in which children learn whilst enjoying themselves and feeling challenged. Computer skills are introduced at this very young age.
