There are two levels within the Early Years. Nursery is for children who have turned 3 years of age by September 1st in the year of entry; Reception is for children who have turned 4 years of age by September 1st in the year of entry.
Immersion in the English language is usually sufficient for children to quickly develop proficient English language skills. On this basis, children may be admitted to Nursery and Reception regardless of their level of English proficiency. Our teachers are trained to support language acquisition and learning by non-native English speakers.
Interview with the Head of School
All children applying for admission are asked to come into the school for an interview before formal acceptance can be offered. The interview, which enables applicants and teachers to meet and interact with each other in the actual school environment, helps to identify any issues that may affect the applicant’s ability to comfortably access the programme, while also serving as an informal orientation for the children who are accepted to Nursery and Reception.
