Early Years

From Nursery to Reception, Our Early Years team provide high quality, interest based and child led opportunities for learning to cover the skills set out in the UK National Curriculum, ‘Development Matters’.

Ages 2-5 years

At Dusit, we provide personalised support and opportunities for our youngest learner’s first steps in education. Children develop quickly in their early years and by laying the best foundation through the standards set out by The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we can ensure our students learn and develop in a healthy and safe environment, enabling them to fulfil their full potential as empowered individuals.

The seven areas of learning and development that shape our educational offering in Early Years are important and inter-connected.

We carefully plan for a range of ‘continuous’ and ‘enhanced’ provision which is flexible and specifically targeted to meet the individual needs of all pupils. ‘Continuous provision’ is the ongoing resources and activities the children can choose to access and ‘Enhanced provision’ is the specific adaptations teachers make to scaffold learning as they interact with the children through their play and child led projects.

Our Focus is always to develop experiences and skills in all areas of learning. Using our broad-based class topics as a framework, teachers build on the interests of each child they observe during play based learning time. This is extended through teacher led sessions, focused activities and multi-sensory challenges. Our activities provide opportunities for children to explore, investigate, create and discover their way through the curriculum. This personalised learning supports each child to work towards their age appropriate goals that their own pace.
