Welcome to EYFS and Primary at Garden International School, Bangkok

We would like to warmly welcome you to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Primary School at Garden International School, Bangkok. As the Head of EYFS and Primary, I am delighted that you have shown an interest in our wonderful school.

Primary education at Garden International School starts at 2 years old, when the children enter our Nursery, and ends once they have completed Year 6. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for our youngest learners and the English National Curriculum for Years 1 to 6.

We are a learning-focussed school. For a child at Garden, this means that we develop their individual skills, knowledge and understanding. We ensure this by providing new learning experiences and allowing time for consolidating, reflecting upon and improving their learning. This academic excellence and personal growth are promoted within a caring, welcoming, international community; grounded by our school’s mission and values.

The well-being of our children is the main focus of all that we do in the school day, and central to our strategic plans to develop the curriculum and the learning environment. From the earliest phase, our UK trained teachers encourage children to interact with the world around them, to wonder and question, to cultivate caring and positive relationships and to be responsible.

The dynamic world we live in requires that successful individuals are able to continually adapt to change and new discoveries. In the Primary School, we recognize the need to foster a love for learning in our children so they remain enthusiastic and motivated to continue their learning beyond the classroom. Our programmes are designed to inspire and generate curiosity. Our children are taught skills that enable them to access and extract the information they need from the vast array of sources available to them. They are introduced to a solid foundation of knowledge and conceptual understandings are nurtured. At Garden International School, Bangkok, children learn by having fun!
