What happens early, matters
for a lifetime
The early years are vital for shaping children’s health, behaviours and attitude to learning. You can make a difference in how your child sees the world by giving them the best start in life.
Our new Reception Grade has been specially designed for inquisitive children between the ages of 2 and 3 years old, ready to discover and understand the world around them.
We believe that each day is valuable in a child’s development.
We focus on learning in three core areas to develop curiosity and enthusiasm for learning:
1. Communication and Language
The development of children’s spoken language underpins all areas of learning and development.Children’s back-and-forth interactions from an early age form the foundations for language and cognitive development.The quality of the conversations they have with adults and peers throughout the day in a language-rich environment is crucial.By commenting on what children are interested in or doing, and echoing back what they say with new vocabulary added, practitioners will build children’s language effectively.
2. Personal, Social, and Emotional Development
Children’s personal, social and emotional development is crucial for children to lead healthy and happy lives, and is fundamental to their cognitive development. Underpinning their personal development are the important attachments that shape their social world. Strong, warm and supportive relationships with adults enable children to learn how to understand their own feelings and those of others.
3. Physical Development
Physical activity is vital in children’s all-round development, enabling them to pursue happy, healthy and active lives. Gross and fine motor experiences develop incrementally throughout early childhood, starting with sensory explorations and the development of a child’s strength, co-ordination and positional awareness.
Give your child the experience of a rich and stimulating bilingual early education.
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
It is crucial for children to develop a life-long love of reading. Reading consists of two dimensions: language comprehension and word reading. Language comprehension (necessary for both reading and writing) starts from birth. It develops when adults talk with children about the world around them and the books (stories and non-fiction) they read with them, and enjoy rhymes, poems and songs together.
Developing a strong grounding in number is essential so that all children develop the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically. Children are able to count confidently, develop a deep understanding of numbers, the relationships between them and the patterns within those numbers.
Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community. The frequency and range of children’s personal experiences increases their knowledge and sense of the world around them. Listening to a broad selection of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems will foster their understanding of our culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world. As well as building important knowledge, this extends their familiarity with words that support understanding across domains. Enriching and widening children’s vocabulary will support later reading comprehension.
The development of children’s artistic and cultural awareness supports their imagination and creativity. It is important that children have regular opportunities to engage with the arts, enabling them to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials. The quality and variety of what children see, hear and participate in is crucial for developing their understanding, self-expression, vocabulary and ability to communicate through the arts. The frequency, repetition and depth of their experiences are fundamental to their progress in interpreting and appreciating what they hear, respond to and observe.

In Baby Bulldogs the three characteristics of effective teaching and learning are:
Playing and exploring – children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’
Active learning – children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
Creating and thinking critically – children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things
