Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) frame work and the Reggio Emilia approach and adapted to suit the needs of our learners in an international environment. We provides an ideals and homely environment for your chid to grow, and develop in an atmosphere of warmth, security and care. In this safe environment your child will flourish and will be encouraged to learn through play and given every opportunity to reach their full potential at their own pace. EYFS children have specialist teaching in PE, Thai and Music.

At Hampton’s we believe children are learn best when they are happy. We believe what children learn is important, but how they learn is even more important if they are to become learners for life in today’s society.

 

 

-Areas of Learning and Development

Prime Areas of Learning

These three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building a child’s capacity to learn and to for relationships.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development
The children’s learning focuses on developmental milestones that relate directly to social interactions and an awareness of self. The developmental statement focus on the children developing self-confidence and self-awareness, forming relationships with their peers and teachers and of course, understanding how to manage their feelings and behaviours.

Communication and Language Development
With many varied opportunities for speaking and listening, in a one to one basis and in larger group, children begin to interact collaboratively with their peers and familiar adults. They begin to negotiate plans and develop talk through play, using language to recreate and imagine experience.

Physical Development
At Hampton, we encouraged our children to develop their physical skill through daily opportunities to be active and interactive both in their classrooms and outdoor environment. Teacher focus on improvement of skills in co-ordination, control, manipulation and movement. Through physical activity using multi- sensory experience in outdoor and indoor environments, links between cognitive development and movement are enhanced.
