Curriculum

Hampton Provides the Ideal Environment for your Child to Grow

Hampton International Pre-School’s curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) frame work and the Reggio Emilia approach.

 

These are adapted to suit the needs of our learners in an international environment.

 

Along with this, we provide an ideal and homely childcare environment for your child to grow, learn and develop in a place full of warmth, security and care.

 

These are all part of our offered curriculum so that your child will flourish and will be encouraged to learn through play.

 

Through this, they will also be given every opportunity to reach their full potential at their own pace.

 

EYFS children have specialist teaching in PE, Thai and Music to complete their holistic development.

At Hampton's, we believe that children learn best when they are happy. We also believe that the learnings and their outcomes is important to gauge the child's development. However, how they learn is even more important in order for them to become learners for life.

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 build relationships.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

The child’s learning is centered towards developmental milestones that relate directly to social interactions and awareness of self.

 

These focus on the child’s development of self-confidence, self-awareness, forming relationships with their peers and teachers, and understanding how to control their feelings and behaviours.

Communication and Language Development

Communication and Language Development

Various opportunities for speaking and learning such as during one-to-one sessions and group activities.

 

Through this, children begin to interact collaboratively with their peers and with familiar adults.

 

They begin to develop their communication skills through playing and using language to communicate their thoughts and feelings.

Physical Development

Physical Development

At Hampton’s, we encourage our children to develop their physical skills through daily activities.

 

A part of which is to be active and interactive, both inside and outside their classrooms.

 

Our teachers focus on the improvement of skills in coordination, control, manipulation, and movement.

 

Through physical activity using multi- sensory experience in outdoor and indoor environments, links between cognitive development and movement are enhanced.

Specific Areas of Learning

Teachers focus on a wide range of essential skills and knowledge which are taught through and strengthened by the Prime areas.

Literacy

Literacy

Children at Hampton are immersed in a rich language environment through books, play, songs, community events, and discussions with friends and teachers.

 

As a child progresses through our curriculum, there is an increased focus placed on letter and sound recognition interweaved with teaching the first stages of writing and reading.

Expressive Arts and Design

Expressive Arts and Design

Children are provided with opportunities to explore and share their ideas and feelings through music, movement, role play, and art.

 

Teachers provide a balance of skill-based art activities as well as open-ended child-initiated art and crafts.

 

Our children also have the opportunity to perform at special events throughout the year at Hampton School.

Mathematics

Mathematics

Teachers bring skills of mathematics alive through play, helping children to use all of their senses to learn about the world around them.

 

We provide a broad range of contexts in which children can explore, enjoy, learn, and practice.

Understanding the World

Understanding the World

Through weekly lessons, children are encouraged to become naturally inquisitive about the world around them.

 

Teachers take time to observe and notice what are the interests of their students.

 

Based on the outcomes of these observations, the teachers plan how they can incorporate these interests to their learning activities.

 

This is done to expand a child’s knowledge and thinking.

Nursery

The daily topics are designed to build basic skills. The topics in Nursery are focused on basic concepts such as colour, animals, and transport.

This allows children to bring their own experiences to school and build them. It also ensures that they begin learning the essential English vocabulary, as it is a vital part of their schooling.

The topics are taught through singing, painting and performing role play and teacher-led activities. They are always busy!

Kindergarten 1

There will be teacher-led independent activities designed around a topic. The K1 topics from Nursery year are extended to develop children’s knowledge of the world. With this, the teachers continue to build their students' confidence and independence by incorporating more activities to their day where the children develop their own ideas and projects. The children will be showing greater awareness of the environment around them. In class, children are introduced to letter sounds and mathematical concepts and numbers.

Kindergarten 2

The learning strategy for K2 year is through the use the students' love of play to explore different roles, solve problems, and develop firm friendships. The children are introduced to phonics, forming letters and words, identifying numbers and simple sums. They are encouraged to start raising their own questions, and explore ways to work things out, in preparation for Year 1.

Year 1

The curriculum is organized according to cross-curricular themes. The objectives are drawn from the National Curriculum, thus ensuring appropriate length and depth of learning. The theme titles are designed to meet the interest levels and ability of children; but across the school there is a balance of historical, geographical, scientific and literature-based topics. Young children’s imagination is stimulated by the inclusion of the topics in their interests, thus creative thinking is developed. The core subjects for Year 1 are Literacy, Numeracy, Science, and Thai. There are also other subjects such as music and art.
