Nursery and Infant School

Nursery and Infant School

The Nursery/Infant School - accredited by the Veneto Region with a score of 100/100 - provides a solid educational foundation for young children through a well balanced curriculum which incorporates sound principles of child development, inserted in a dynamic and stimulating environment.

This peculiar formula promotes, in our younger students, the ability to naturally develop the necessary skills needed to comprehend and communicate in English, meanwhile increasing self-esteem, curiosity and problem solving skills. Numerous educational activities are also planned, along the course of the year, to support and guide children in the learning process and maturation of their full potential.

Aims and objectives
Our aim is to provide a developmentally appropriate and individualised learning environment that enables the children to enjoy their time at school whilst growing physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively. We guide the children to make appropriate choices, stretching their minds with new experiences and daily activities, encouraging the acquisition of moral values, knowledge and the ability to reason, in order to reach their full potential in all academic and social areas of school life.

Curriculum
The Nursery/Infant School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. This is based on seven areas of development and learning.

The first three prime areas, which are the key foundations for children’s ability to learn and develop healthily, are:

  • Communication, Language and Literacy;
  • Personal, Social and Emotional development;
  • Physical development;

Following on from these are the four specific areas of learning in which children are encouraged and motivated to apply these skills:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematical reasoning, problem solving and numeracy;
  • Expressive Arts and Creative Design;
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the world;
