In the early years at Shield International School, we take the approach that
each child is unique, with special talents and abilities and an individual
learning style. We acknowledge that children develop and learn in different
ways and at different rates, and believe that all areas of learning and
development are equally important and inter-connected.
We see our children as naturally competent learners from birth, resilient, capable, confident and self-assured, and have designed a program to build on these qualities, developing positive supportive relationships to nurture an inquisitive approach to learning where making mistakes is viewed as an important part of the learning process. In educating our children to become strong, responsible, independent learners, our teachers recognize that the learning environment plays a key role in supporting and extending a child’s development.
Our Nursery through Foundation to the Reception classes offer a safe, caring learning environment, which promotes physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being, with good communications skills, as part of the core curriculum. We have a strong focus on developing key literacy and numeracy skills, artistic abilities and interests and a general knowledge and understanding of the world. In addition to the core curriculum, we also offer a rich program of class trips and extracurricular activities, and work in close partnership with parents to support our children on their learning journey through Nursery to Reception.
