The Pinnacle Of Early Education

Our emergent framework is designed to provide the ultimate learning opportunity for young minds. Your child will be exposed to a blend of the best parts of all the leading approaches around the world.

This unique framework combined with our futuristic nature-based facilities provides your child with greater opportunity to find placement in the world’s best schools.

1. Individualised Emergent Approach
one size doesn't fit all

Our emergent education approach is based on creating a path for children to explore and develop based on their own interests. Instead of a standardised approach where one learning style is applied to all children, we celebrate diversity, meaning our teachers actively observe children and respond to their specific interests and needs.

2. EYFS Foundational Framework
Comprehensive learning & development

As a natural complement to our emergent approach, EYFS is a British education framework that provides comprehensive learning and development from birth to five years of age. It promotes a secure, safe and happy childhood based on high quality standards, active play and learning which is child-focused and child-led. EYFS emphasizes the importance of development in the first five years and supports children to reach their full potential.

There are 7 areas of learning and development within EYFS.

The below areas are of particular importance as they are the first building blocks of a child's development and ignite enthusiasm for learning.

  • 1. Understanding the World
  • 2. Expressive Arts & Design
  • 3. Communication & Language
  • 4. Physical Development
  • 5. Personal, Social & Emotional Development
  • 6. Literacy
  • 7. Mathematics

Observation is a valuable tool used to depict an accurate picture of a child's development. In order to form a holistic summary of development, we use a wide range of perspectives including the child, educators and parents/family. Assessments are given periodically based on each of the areas of learning & development.

3. Child-led Montessori Methods
Interactive play-based learning

Montessori is a child-led approach which allows children to use their imagination, follow their interests, express individuality and be empowered as leaders in their learning journeys. Montessori features open learning areas where children are encouraged to learn from each other, rather than being sat at desks for the majority of the day as in most traditional education settings.

4. Reggio Emilia Collaborative Learning
collaborative approach

Reggio Emilia focuses on learning through a collaborative approach where children, parents and teachers work together with the belief that each child has unlimited potential.

Classrooms are set up with natural materials that can be used as open ended resources rather than having 1 intended purpose. Children can then use their creativity to play with these items and be innovative in the way that they give purpose to them.

5. STEM Multidisciplinary Learning
STEM education

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education supports children to integrate knowledge across disciplines. Children are perfectly adapted to learning STEM concepts and do best when activities tap into their natural curiosity about the living world.

Within the STEM context, we blend traditional subjects and make learning relevant by stimulating investigations which encourage children to make comparisons, test ideas and share their discoveries.

6. Language
academic & vital social skills

There are many benefits of learning multiple languages including improved memory, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, enhanced concentration, ability to multitask and better listening skills.

The Center of Excellence offers full-immersion bilingual options for English and Arabic or English and French. Teachers are native speakers of the principal language and support the children’s language acquisition throughout the day.
