A Sound Academic Foundation
The main focus of our Early Years curriculum is on what the children can do and progression is encouraged through exploration and experimentation.
Our programme is carefully structured to enable all areas of learning to be explored while ensuring the interests of the children are maintained.
Adopting a child-led approach through an Emergent Curriculum, enables children to learn in their own particular way and allows them the freedom to progress through their educational journey at their own pace and in their own style.
A self-expression programme to further enhance our holistic programme
Exposure to Music, Drama and Movement plays an important role in helping children to develop social, emotional and cognitive skills whilst also teaching them to express themselves physically, to represent their emotions and to acquire fundamental concepts. Our Early Years Self-Expression Programme aims to help our learners develop holistically by providing opportunities to also improve on their verbal abilities, turn-taking, team building as well as to appreciate art in its various forms.
Outdoor Education as an integral part of our teaching and learning experience
As pioneers in outdoor education in Malta, due to our unique countryside location, our established outdoor programme is an integral part of the Early Years Experience. Our curriculum is planned in a way that all learning areas such as Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Music, Art and Movement can be experienced through an outdoor setting.
This programme helps children to grow in confidence as a result of the freedom, time and space they are given in their outdoor learning experience. This allows them to demonstrate independence at each individual child's rate while they feel empowered as they learn more about their own natural environment.
A nature area on the school grounds with a natural garigue which is home to indigenous flora and fauna and a natural pond, is designed to develop knowledge and awareness of the environment and how to contribute to a globally sustainable future. This will be complemented with a new Outdoor Education Area over 5 tumoli of natural land adjacent to the school, which will be completed in 2023.
