Early Years

Shrewsbury International School has two campuses: Riverside (Charoenkrung) and City Campus (Rama 9). Riverside offers through-education from 3 to 18 years, whilst children who complete their Primary education at City Campus move on to Senior School at Riverside at the age of 11 years.

Both campuses have specially designed Early Years Departments for our youngest children aged 3 to 5; safe, secure and stimulating environments for children to explore, and where they develop core skills that set the foundation for successful lifelong learning.  

Early Years provision is divided between Early Years 1 (for children aged 3 before 31st August) and Early Years 2 (for children aged 4 before 31st August). All of our EY classes are staffed by fully qualified international and local teachers.

EARLY YEARS CURRICULUM

The Early Years Foundation Stage has seven areas of learning, all of which are connected and are of equal importance. Every child is unique and has particular interests, skills and needs. Here they have opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments, both indoors and outdoors. Through “Active Learning”, the children experience a range of challenges and playful learning opportunities across the Prime and Specific Areas of learning and development. Every day they take part in a balance of carefully planned child-initiated activities in order to develop both as individuals, and as effective learners.
