Learning Through Play
“Play Is The Work of the Child” Maria Montessori.
We take play very seriously at British Early Years Centre. The curriculum balances child initiated play and teacher led play. We believe that children should be free to choose the type of play, the toys and activities themselves during free play time, in much the same way as Motessori learning. It is therefore our responsibility to make available to the children, a wealth of resources and role play areas.
Adult led play is more of a balance of the different types of play. We like ensure that every child has daily opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills as well as developing their creativity and imagination. Role play is an incredible important part of the curriculum as it allows language and knowledge to be developed extremely rapidly in a fun and exciting way.
Our school's levels speak for themsleves!
Because of the immersion of sounds and numbers that preschool children experience, our Reception and Year 1 children generally work a whole academic year ahead of the National Average for the UK. The secret to our success definitely lies in our unique approach to teaching and learning. Children are ‘streamed’ into higher and lower groups accordingly to either challenge and motivate or to catch up and build confidence. Our results both academically and socially have brought us recognition from the U.K. and most recently by the European Chamber of Commerce who recommended us as a leading International Pre School in Bangkok.
What The Parents Say
Our son attended the school for 3 years, and in that time, learnt about Michaelangelo and David Bowie, developed a fierce passion for learning new things, especially science, and most importantly, grew socially, with teachers who helped him navigate emotions and interactions. Some say teachers are meant to instruct and parents to educate, but there’s a whole lot of education going on at BEYC too. We are grateful to have been part of its family during our son’s crucial early years.
Sze and Christian
From what our son, Akira, narrates us every evening, we are assured 100% that BEYC is all about “learning”. Thanks to phonics, in which the school particularly excels, Akira can read and write simple sentences. And, because of this newly found ability, he seems to absorb new information faster now, and is more eager to explore new topics such as science. Before BEYC, he was not much interested in art, but after a year in the school with a great art programme, he now begs us to buy paper and water colour. We find all the teachers very dedicated and professional, showering children with just-right amount of loving care and discipline.
We’ve really observed Dylan’s development accelerate within just a 6 month period at BEYC. His social interaction, language skill, level of inquisitiveness of the world, logic (sometimes working against us!) all improved rapidly and he even has fun learning phonics and number games. It’s a lovely homely facility with friendly staff and mall teaching groups and a curriculum that clearly works.
Paul and Nipa Haines
From Preschool to Year 1
We believe that play is central to all development in children. It is through play that children become fit and strong, practice physical skills as well as social and emotional skills.
Play is also a time where risk and fear can be experienced in a safe environment, either through the support of adults or through imaginative play. Acting and role playing prepare them for real life, where confidence is developed and fear of the unknown, minimised.
BEYC follows a play-based curriculum that balances Child-Initiated Play with Adult-Initiated Play. Both Child-Initiated and Adult-Initiated Play balances key areas of play; Gross and Fine Motor, Small-World, Sensory, Construction and Role play.
Small groups are an integral part of all academic learning at BEYC. Groups of no more than 6 children, differentiated by skill and/or ability level allow teachers and our trained support staff to spend quality time with each child, in every single lesson.
We all want the very best for our children
