EYFS Curriculum

First School:

When children begin their journey at Garden International School Bangkok they are taught with guidance from Development Matters. This guidance takes into account that children develop quickly within the Foundation Stage and helps guide teachers to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life. 

The four themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage underpin our practice. This document – Development Matters – shows how these themes, and the principles work together. 

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them. Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments. This is something we believe strongly at Garden International School, Bangkok.

Our curriculum is split into seven areas of learning, 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas. Prime areas are fundamental, work together, and move through to support development in all other areas.These areas are our primary focus, once the children have a basic level of skills in these areas they are ready to further develop skills within a specific area. 

At Garden International School Bangkok, your child is at the heart of everything we do.

We spend time observing your child watching how they interact with peers and materials. We use this to reflect on how your child is performing in all seven areas of the curriculum and then we use all of the information to plan what to teach your child next. To further engage your child we will then incorporate their interests.

Alongside the curriculum areas are the Characteristics of Effective Learning. These are extremely important in supporting children’s development. By teaching through play we encourage and support your children to engage, motivate and think. Your child is the future and we will help them develop the skills needed to be successful.
